Warner Bros. Promotes Execs Who Oversaw ‘Dark Knight Rises,’ ‘Lego’

Warner Bros. has promoted longtime execs Jon Berg, who oversaw “The Dark Knight Rises,” and Courtenay Valenti, who supervised “The Lego Movie,” to exec VP of development and production.

They will report to Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production. The promotions came in the wake of recent departures of Lynn Harris and Sarah Schechter.

Valenti has been with the studio for 25 years and is the daughter of the late MPAA president Jack Valenti. Berg joined in 2008 after working as an independent producer at Guy Walks Into a Bar and producing “Elf.”

The duo will assume oversight and management of the development team and budget, in addition to their current duties.

Valenti supervised the last four films in the Harry Potter series, “Happy Feet,” Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” and upcoming titles “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Focus,” “The Judge” and “The Intern” from director Nancy Meyers.

Berg oversaw the Sherlock Holmes franchise, “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Argo” and “The Blind Side.” He is currently supervising “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Jersey Boys,” “Run All Night,” “Inherent Vice,” “Entourage,” “Midnight Special,” and “American Sniper.”
