He will not be replaced as the company will phase out the position and give Weinstock’s duties to its senior leadership team.
During his tenure, he worked on a $350 million bank facility and on Annapurna’s distribution deal with MGM for the 25th James Bond film and for “Creed 2.” He also worked on Annapurna’s deal with Laika for its next animated feature, “Missing Link.” The company produced “Detroit” and “Phantom Thread,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis. Its upcoming titles include “Sorry to Bother You,” Barry Jenkins’ “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “Sisters Brothers” with Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly and Jake Gyllenhaal, and “Destroyer” with Nicole Kidman.
Weinstock left 20th Century Fox as president of domestic theatrical marketing to join Annapurna Pictures in 2016.
