Matt Reilly Joins Fox as Production VP
20th Century Fox has rounded out its creative team with the hire of Matt Reilly.
Reilly, who served as an executive at Warners before acting as vp production at Rough House Pictures, has joined 20th as vp production and already is ensconced in the Century City fortress.
The move caps a string of recent hires, including Mark Roybal, who came from Indian Paintbrush in May, as well as Mike Ireland, formerly of Appian Way, and ex-DreamWorks exec Kira Goldberg. Daria Cercek is another new exec, having been promoted internally earlier this summer.
Reilly and the others report to Emma Watts, Fox’s production president. Other, more-established members of the team include Steve Asbell, Jeremy Kramer and Jason Young.
Reilly was last at Rough House, the company he helped form with Danny McBride, David Gordon Green and Jody Hill. He was most recently an executive producer on Prince Avalanche, written and directed by Green and starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.
Among the movies he shepherded at Warners were Ben Affleck's The Town and Observe and Report.
