MGM has renewed Jonathan Glickman’s contract as president of the MGM Motion Picture Group for three more years, running through February 2020, it was announced Thursday by MGM chairman and CEO Gary Barber, to whom Glickman reports.
Glickman will continue to oversee MGM’s film development and production while also targeting co-financing opportunities. His responsibilities also are expanding to include overseeing live stage productions based on MGM properties.
Glickman joined MGM in 2011 from his post as president of Spyglass Entertainment, where he previously worked for Barber.
“Jon and I have worked closely together over the past 18 years and his taste and commitment to the job continues to impress me,” Barber said in announcing the renewal. “He has done a terrific job of developing powerful films from both original material as well as utilizing our storied library to reimagine many classic films and IP to great success.”
MGM, which most recently partnered with Warner Bros. on Creed, will next be represented on the big screen by Ben-Hur, which it produced with Paramount and is set to open Aug. 19, and The Magnificent Seven, produced with Sony and set to bow Sept. 23.
