Fox film executive Daria Cercek has left the studio to join New Line Cinema, taking the title of executive vp production.
The move occurs under the cloud of Disney’s acquisition of Fox and the murky future of the film team at the Century City-based company. Cercek’s move has been in the works for some time. Disney announced this week that key top Fox execs would be retained under a new reporting structure.
At Fox, Cercek acted as senior vp production and oversaw the last three X-Men movies. She also championed comedies such as The Heat and The Other Woman and was the studio’s point person on Paul Feig projects.
“Daria has built a reputation as one of the most well-regarded executives in the industry,” New Line president and chief creative officer Richard Brener said Tuesday in a statement. “To this day, I’ve never heard so many people speak so highly of someone. In addition to her quality relationships with the creative community, Daria brings a breadth of experience and an impressive track record. She will be a tremendous asset to New Line and we’re so excited to welcome her to the team.”
