Paramount Pictures has tapped Mika Pryce to join the studio as senior vp production for the Motion Picture Group.
Pryce joins Paramount from Don Cheadle’s production company, This Radicle Act Productions, where she served as head of development. From April 26, she will report to Motion Picture Group co-presidents Daria Cercek and Michael Ireland.
“Mika has fantastic talent relationships, excellent taste and knows how to build a movie from the ground up. We’re excited to have her bring her entrepreneurial skill set to the studio to help us tell great stories for global audiences. She is the perfect addition to our team,” Cercek and Ireland said in a statement.
While at This Radical Act Productions, Pryce oversaw development on TV projects that included the dark comedy Max set at HBO Max; an adaptation of A. Lee Martinez’s 2009 fantasy fiction novel Monster; and They Can’t Kill Us All, about the roots of Black Lives Matter and based on Wesley Lowery’s award-winning book.
Pryce earlier was an executive at Universal Pictures, where her credits included Good Boys, Little, Pacific Rim 2 and Get Out, and before that she worked as an executive at the independent production company and financier Red Granite Pictures.
