Idris Elba’s Green Door Pictures has strengthened its scripted development team with the appointment of Ana Garanito as head of development.
Garanito was most recently with Runaway Fridge Productions and FremantleMedia International. She will join executive consultant Stewart Till and Elba to lead the company into its next chapter in scripted film and TV.
“I couldn’t be more excited to have Ana join Green Door. Ana is smart, tenacious and shares my commitment to finding great material that is character and story driven and lives in the zeitgeist,” Elba said in a statement. “Stewart Till, with his vast experience, has been a constant source of direction and guidance, my company benefits from his presence.”
Green Door’s next project is “A Hundred Streets,” a feature film which Elba also stars in with Gemma Arterton, which will premiere at the LA International Film Festival this June. Other co-productions include the observational documentary “Cut From a Different Cloth.”
Most recently announced is the TV series “Guerilla,” which has Sky and Showtime attached as broadcasters for their respective territories. Elba is represented by WME, the Artists Partnership and attorney James Finney.
