Troubled studio Relativity Media has fired Adam Fields from his post as co-president of production for alleged breach of contract after four months on the job.

Fields, who could not be reached for comment, was given a letter of termination on Sept. 8.

Relativity announced it had hired Fields on April 27, two weeks after the mini-studio emerged from bankruptcy protection. Prior to then, Fields had served as a consultant at Sony Pictures and had worked with Relativity on its movies “Limitless,” “Safe Haven,” and “21 & Over.”

Fields was assigned oversight of business affairs, physical production, and post-production, reporting to Relativity chairman Ryan Kavanaugh. Kevin Spacey’s producing partner Dana Brunetti was officially named co-president of production in March with oversight over the creative operations as Spacey opted out of previously announced plans to assume the post.

Fields’ producing and executive producing credits include “Donnie Darko,” “Sixteen Candles,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Brokedown Palace,” and “The Wedding Ringer.”

Fields’ departure comes with Relativity releasing the horror movie “The Disappointments Room,” starring Kate Beckinsale and Lucas Till, as its first post-bankruptcy title. Early estimates on Friday showed dismal results with a weekend gross of less than $2 million.
