Paramount Pictures has appointed Elizabeth Raposo as president of production.
Raposo, who has been with the studio since 2005 as director of development, will report to Paramount’s film group president Marc Evans. In her previous position, she oversaw production on several of the studio’s major franchise titles, including the Mission: Impossible, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Jack Reacher series. Raposo also oversaw production on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and J.J. Abrams’ Super 8.
“Elizabeth is among the very best executives working in production today, with a depth of experience across every genre of live-action filmmaking. I am very excited to see her take on this new role,” Evans said Thursday in a statement.
Before Paramount, Raposo worked at Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures as director of development. She first joined the company in 2001 as a director/producer’s assistant.
“It’s an honor to take on the role of president of production and work alongside this terrific team,” said Raposo. “I am excited about the future of the studio under the leadership and vision of Jim Gianopulos and Marc Evans.”
Evans previously held the post of president of production but stepped into the role of film group president in March 2015. Paramount named Gianopulos studio chairman and CEO in April of this year.
