Alix Madigan Departs Broad Green as Head of Creative Affairs

Alix Madigan is departing fast-growing Broad Green Pictures as head of creative affairs to return to her roots as an independent producer.

The split is amicable and comes as Broad Green ramps up its efforts to aim at the mainstream market with such fare as ensemble dance comedy “Step Sisters,” Bryan Cranston’s drug drama “The Infiltrator” and Billy Bob Thornton’s comedy “Bad Santa 2.”

Broad Green, operated by brothers Daniel and Gabriel Hammond, shifted focus last month by hiring “Straight Outta Compton” producer Matt Alvarez as president of production. Board Green’s biggest box office success so far was “A Walk in the Woods” with $30 million, but arthouse fare such as Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” have not broken out.

Alvarez has a strong track record with producing credits including “Friday,” “Barbershop” and “Ride Along.”

Madigan was hired in September from Anonymous Content, where she was a staff producer following stints with Propaganda Films, Skouras Pictures and Avenue Entertainment. She was a producer on the drama “Winter’s Bone,” which featured a breakout Oscar-nominated performance by Jennifer Lawrence.

Madigan also produced “Laggies,” “White Bird in a Blizzard,” “May in the Summer” and “The Automatic Hate.” She also worked on “Smiley Face,” “Married Life,” “Cleaner,” “Your Friends and Neighbors,” “Case 39” and “Girl Most Likely.”
