Mythos Studios, the new production company unveiled earlier this year, is staffing up with the addition of Andrew Swett as vp production and development, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Swett previously was at Lord Miller Productions as a production and development executive, where he worked on The Lego Batman Movie, Brigsby Bear and the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, among other projects. In his new position, Swett will report directly to Mythos chairman David Maisel.
“We are excited to welcome Andrew to the Mythos Studios team,” Maisel said in a statement. “His work on so many films, especially on recent animation projects, is ideal experience to help us bring the magic of Cupid, Fathom and Soulfire to the world.”
In their own statement about Swett’s new position, Phil Lord and Chris Miller said, “Andrew is a great guy with impressive taste and someone who works his ass off. He’s a rising star, his contributions are invaluable and he never quits. Except for the time he quit working for us. Other than that, he doesn’t quit. We’re really happy for him for earning this opportunity, and he better hire us when we are old and need to keep our insurance.”
Mythos was founded by former Marvel Studios chairman Maisel and Justin Bieber manager Scooter Braun in March. The company, which acquired 50 percent of publisher Aspen Comics, is currently developing Aspen properties Soulfire and Fathom, as well as an animated take on mythological figure Cupid, intended as a vehicle for Bieber.
