The duo had been with MGM since 2011 and were jointly promoted in 2018 by Jonathan Glickman, who was president of MGM’s Motion Picture Group. They were tasked with being responsible for MGM’s growth in film franchises, re-imagined movies based on the studio’s library and original productions.
Glickman departed in January and was replaced by Michael De Luca, who was given the post of chairman of the motion picture group. In early April, industry veteran executive and producer Pamela Abdy was named president of MGM Motion Picture Group.
Variety reported exclusively on April 24 that MGM had enacted a round of companywide layoffs that eliminated around 50 people, roughly 7% of MGM’s 750-person workforce.
Lange worked on “Me Before You,” “Tomb Raider” starring Alicia Vikander and the upcoming James Bond movie, “No Time to Die.” Rosenberg oversaw production on Ryan Coogler’s “Creed,” “Creed 2,” and the remake of “The Magnificent Seven,” and worked on the two most recent James Bond movies, “Skyfall” and “Spectre.”
Upcoming MGM releases include “Candyman”; “Samaritan,” starring Sylvester Stallone; “Respect,” with Jennifer Hudson; and “Dog,” co-directed by Channing Tatum (who will also star) and Reid Carolin.
