Emmerich

Chairman, Pictures Group

Emmerich survived several rounds of executive shuffling at the studio in 2020 and wound up on top with exclusive greenlight power for all feature production at Warner­Media’s Studios and Networks Group, including worldwide theatrical releases and original films for HBO Max. In spite of the coronavirus pandemic forcing everyone to work from home starting mid-March, Emmerich was able to keep the full development and pre-­production slate moving forward, and when the time came, he was able to resume production on “Matrix 4,” “The Batman,” “Elvis” and “Fantastic Beasts 3.” He has also locked down a steady stream of content from a diverse collection of perspectives that will hit theaters in 2021, including “In the Heights,” “King Richard” and “Judas and the Black Messiah” — all of which will stream on HBO Max day-and-date with their theatrical releases, alongside the rest of the 2021 Warner Bros. slate.
