Glickman

After almost a decade into Glickman’s tenure, MGM has scored with the Creed franchise, and the near century-old studio had modest hits in 2019 with “The Hustle,” “Fighting With My Family,” and reboots of “Child’s Play” and “The Addams Family.” After relaunching Orion Pictures, Glickman also oversaw the establishment of United Artists Releasing, a distribution joint venture with Annapurna. The future of that union could be rocky, however, given Annapurna’s recent box office woes and the management style of its mercurial founder Megan Ellison, as well as Glickman’s scheduled departure from president of motion pictures into a first-look producing deal, with Michael De Luca replacing him. Next up at MGM: “No Time to Die,” the highly anticipated James Bond sequel; “Respect,” an Aretha Franklin biopic starring Jennifer Hudson; and “Candyman,” a remake of the cult horror film with Jordan Peele writing and producing.
