Following her stint years back as president of Disney’s Buena Vista Motion Picture Group, Jacobson established herself as a major independent producer with a pair of franchises, one big (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”) and the other huge (“The Hunger Games”). Partnered with Brad Simpson in their production label Color Force since 2012, she’s enjoyed continued success with a progressive slate of projects, including features “Crazy Rich Asians” (2018) and “All Day and a Night” (2020), along with television series “Pose,” “American Crime Story” and Hulu’s upcoming “Y: The Last Man.” While her recent big-screen adaptation of the Donna Tartt novel “The Goldfinch” did not find success, she looks to be back in the win column with a “Hunger Games” prequel scheduled to shoot in 2021.
