Mosaic taps Lawrence Inglee as prod’n prexy

Takes over for David Householter, who's producing 'Anchorman 2'

Mosaic has tapped Lawrence Inglee (“The Messenger”) as president of production, taking over for David Householter, who’s leaving the company to produce Paramount’s “Anchorman” sequel.

Householter — who co-produced the original “Anchorman” pic — and Inglee were expected to work alongside each other at Mosaic before Householter was presented with the opportunity to reunite with Judd Apatow, director Adam McKay and star Will Ferrell on the long-gestating laffer.

Paramount had no comment on Householter’s involvement with the sequel.

“We were already talking to Lawrence about joining Mosaic, but when David was asked to produce ‘Anchorman 2’ with Gary Sanchez and Judd, it made perfect sense to have Lawrence lead the film division,” Mosaic partner Jimmy Miller told Variety. “We love his taste and tenacity, and feel that he will fit in perfectly with the culture at Mosaic. He already had a number of friends and acquaintances here at the company.”

Prior to joining Mosaic, Inglee served as prexy of Lightstream Pictures, which produced Oren Moverman’s Woody Harrelson starrer “Rampart.” He also served as co-president of The Mark Gordon Company.

In addition to producing Moverman’s award-winning drama “The Messenger,” Inglee served as an associate producer on Roland Emmerich’s “The Day After Tomorrow” and Adam Rapp’s “Winter Passing.”

On the production side, Mosaic is currently developing an untitled Sony comedy from the “Bad Teacher” team of director Jake Kasdan and scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. In addition to Apatow, Ferrell and McKay, company’s management clients include Jim Carrey, Jessica Chastain, Andy Samberg, Olivia Munn, Chris Pratt, January Jones and Daniel Tosh.
