Working closely with Adam Fogelson, he has impressively and successfully ramped up STX’s business model and full slate quickly. The big proof of concept for their model is the $180 million+ worldwide hit “Bad Moms,” which was produced for just $20 million and has already spawned 2017’s offshoot of the brand, “Bad Dads.”

Where other studios have automatically green-lit more expensive sequels, STX will focus on extending consumer passion for the “Bad Moms” brand with a series of film spin-offs, a reality television show, short-form digital content, and a robust consumer products program. The team has also secured top creatives (international rights on Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” and U.S. rights on Aaron Sorkin’s “Molly’s Game”).

The Columbia University grad was previously head of marketing at Fox, where he successfully launched blockbusters including “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” “X-Men: First Class,” “Prometheus,” “The Heat” and Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning “Life of Pi.” Prior to Fox, he was President of Production, Marketing and Chief Creative Officer at Walt Disney Studios where he oversaw Tim Burton’s billion dollar-grossing “Alice in Wonderland,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Narnia” and “Step Up” franchises, “Wild Hogs,” “Enchanted,” “The Proposal” and blockbusters “The Sixth Sense” and “Finding Nemo.”

Q&A

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given in your career?

“"Do what you love, and you'll never have to work a day in your life", said my boss at the AVCO CinemaCenter in Westwood - sarcastically - where I worked as an usher the summer Alien came out (1979). But the irony is: I truly believe that statement, and I subscribe to it - and have been saying it to my 3 daughters almost every day of their lives.”

What or who inspires you?

“Movies. Every movie I've ever seen. And not just the great ones, but every film which aspired to greatness but somehow fell short because, well - making movies is so damn hard. When any movie gets made, i think it's a miracle; when a great movie gets made, I think it's got to be some kind of divine intervention. I watch a film every night, religiously, and I'm as inspired by the profound effort it takes to mount a movie as I am by the films themselves.”
