“We are very fortunate to have such an exceptional group of directors on Legendary’s board whose counsel and advice is invaluable to our shareholders,” Tull said in a statement. “Isaac’s and Della’s unique experience and individual viewpoints will bring additional value, as we continue to grow our core film business and diversify Legendary’s asset offerings into analytics, international markets and digital platforms.”

Legendary has a co-financing deal with Universal Pictures. Its notable recent releases include “Unbroken” and “Interstellar,” and its upcoming films include “Jurassic World” and “Crimson Peak.”
