Elizabeth
Gabler

President

As president of Fox 2000 since 1999, Gabler has shepherded a diverse slate of films such as Oscar nominee “Hidden Figures,” Oscar-winning “Life of Pi,” “Marley & Me” and “The Devil Wears Prada.” She partnered with “Hunger Games” producer Nina Jacobson’s Color Force on the hit franchise “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” as part of the companies’ first-look deal. After other studios passed on the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line,” Gabler grabbed it, made it for a lean $28 million — and earned five Oscar noms, with a win for Reese Witherspoon. She was named visionary of the year at 2018’s GLSEN Respect Awards for Fox 2000’s leadership in inclusive filmmaking, including the coming-out rom-com “Love, Simon,” the first major studio release to 
center on a gay lead. Following its acquisition of 20th Century Fox in March 2019, Disney revealed that it would shut down the Fox 2000 label once its final projects are finished.
