Longtime 20th Century Fox domestic marketing president Tony Sella is on his way out.
Insiders say Sella is believed to have informed several top executives that he has decided to leave the movie studio following a dramatic restructuring announced last week that puts international presidents Paul Hanneman and Tomas Jegeus in charge of worldwide marketing and distribution over Sella.
Under the new structure, Sella reports to them, and not Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman/CEO Jim Gianopulos.
His exit is being negotiated and it wasn’t immediately clear when he’ll formally leave. Fox declined comment.
Sella — who has sometimes been a polarizing figure within the studio — ran Fox’s domestic marketing department with Oren Aviv; Aviv was shown the door last week as part of the blueprint putting Hanneman and Jegeus in charge.
Sella, who couldn’t be reached for comment, has worked at Fox for more than two decades. In 2002, he and Pamela Levine were named co-presidents of domestic theatrical marketing. Levine left Fox nearly three years ago, with Aviv coming aboard to replace her.
