Warner Bros. Pictures


Chairman, Pictures Group

Emmerich has built a strong track record as head of the film group at Warner Bros., which undoubtedly helped him survive a messy 2020 studio reorganization that pushed other longtime execs out the door and consolidated his power, giving him oversight of all the studio’s feature output, both theatrical and streaming. But that didn’t soften the reception he received in December 2020, when he called agency chiefs to inform them the studio would be releasing its films simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. Emmerich signed a multi-year contract extension in the summer of 2021, which has him well-positioned for leading the studio at Warner Bros. Discovery, the new entity that will result from AT&T spinning off WarnerMedia and merging it with Discovery in 2022.
