Konop’s first projects are “Neighbors 2” for Universal, currently shooting in Atlanta, and the untitled Fede Alvarez thriller for Sony, which is in post-production.
Konop oversaw production at Mandate Pictures between 2004 and 2011 with Good Universe co-founders Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake, including “Juno,” “50/50,” “Young Adult” and “Hope Springs.” She was executive in charge of production on Ghost House films “Drag Me to Hell” and “30 Days of Night,” directed by David Slade, and a co-producer on “The Possession.”
Konop will report to Kahane and run all aspects of physical production for Good Universe’s slate of films from pre-production through post-production, including formulation of production plans, budgeting, scheduling and managing day-to-day operations.
Konop has produced 37 films, including “Bring It on Again,” “The Breed” for Sony Screen Gems and Steve James’ “Joe and Max” for Starz.
