Legendary Entertainment


Vice Chairman, Worldwide Production

Parent is accustomed to going big at Legendary, with recent tentpole features such as the $160 million sequel “Godzilla vs. Kong” and Denis Villeneuve’s $165 million adaptation of Frank Herbert’s dense and esoteric sci-fi novel “Dune.” Her film division is also mixing it up with a slate that includes “The Machine,” starring comedian Bert Kreischer, reboots of the horror franchises “The Toxic Avenger,” starring Peter Dinklage, and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” and thriller “Fresh,” which director Mimi Cave has described as an allegory for the commodification of women’s bodies. Parent — who earned an Oscar nomination for best picture as a producer of 2015’s “The Revenant” — also has a sequel to the 2021 Legendary feature “Enola Holmes” in the works for Netflix.
