Tucker Tooley in Talks to Replace Weinstein Company COO David Glasser

Relativity Media president Tucker Tooley is in discussions to replace the Weinstein Company’s chief operating officer David Glasser, insiders confirmed to Variety.

No deal has been offered to Tooley, and the studio executive has his hands full overseeing Relativity as it winds its way through a complicated bankruptcy and auction. He has committed to staying with the studio as it goes through Chapter 11, sources say. An auction is scheduled to take place on Oct. 1, and court approval for a sale is expected to come in the following weeks.

Glasser’s departure was announced in July. His exit was seen as a loss for the studio behind such Oscar-winning titles as “The King’s Speech” and “The Artist” because he is respected for his financial acumen. He said he’s leaving the company in search of a new opportunity, but will stay on to find a replacement.

Tooley joined Relativity as president of worldwide production in 2007, after years spent working as a producer of films and television shows. His producing credits include “We’re the Millers,” “Shadowboxer” and “Poolhall Junkies.”

Relativity’s film slate has been mostly disappointing at the box office in the past few years, with films like “Black and White,” “Beyond the Lights” and “Brick Mansions” underperforming.

TheWrap first reported Tooley’s talks.
