Greg Silverman Re-Ups With Warner Bros.
UPDATED: The studio's president of production will continue in his post for another three years.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ president of production Greg Silverman has re-upped with the Burbank-based studio.
Silverman, who has been with the studio since 1999 (minus a short stint at Revolution Studios in the early 2000s) and moved up the ranks after starting as a junior exec, will continue to have oversight of the studio’s development and budget.
With the new contract, he will also, according to the studio, be “charged with seeking new opportunities to diversify and build upon the success the company has consistently achieved."
The move keeps a winning team atop one of the biggest studios in town, as the team headed by Warner Bros. Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov is one of the most stable. The team is also making a greater number of tentpole-sized movies than any other studio.
Silverman, when he returned to Warners from Revolution, regularly moved up the ranks at the studio, from vp, production in 2002 to senior vp, production in 2004 to executive vp, production in 2006.
Among the recent crop of films he’s overseen are Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and Inception, 300 and The Hangover movies.
