Ellison

CEO

Thanks to the pandemic, Ellison and his 15-year-old prodco, Skydance Media, had a wealth of its trademark big-budget movies debut on screens big and small in 2021, including the action thrillers “Without Remorse” and “The Tomorrow War,” which went direct-to-streaming on Amazon after Paramount canceled their 2020 theatrical releases. Two other big Paramount films, “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Snake Eyes,” were bumped multiple times before finally landing in theaters. His upcoming slate includes the seventh and eighth installments of the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, the time-travel movie “The Adam Project,” starring Ryan Reynolds, the Apple TV+ animated features “Luck” and “Spellbound” and a “Jack Reacher” series for Amazon. In January, Skydance closed a $1 billion revolving credit facility led by J.P. Morgan.
