Another Hollywood studio is seeing a major shakeup as co-marketing chief Oren Aviv exits 20th Century Fox.
Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter Aviv is leaving the top post after just a little over two years on the job. He ran the domestic marketing department with co-marketing president Tony Sella, who insiders say is staying put.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Aviv will be replaced.
Aviv worked at Disney before joining Fox in January of 2011. Some within the studio have been dissatisfied with the domestic marketing operation in the aftermath of numerous box office disappointments, including Runner Runner, Turbo, Epic and The Internship. Conversely, the international side of the marketing division is well regarded across Hollywood.
Aviv’s departure comes one year after Tom Rothman exited as co-chairman of Fox, leaving Jim Gianopulos in sole charge of the studio. Gianopulos was reluctant to make any abrupt changes but has nonetheless been evaluating the landscape, according to insiders.
Aviv is the latest in a string of marketing heads to be let go after DreamWorks Animation’s Anne Globe (DWA has a distribution deal with Fox), Relativity Media’s Terry Curtin and Sony’s Marc Weinstock.
