The Murdochs apparently don’t like to waste empty office space. Lachlan Murdoch, 21st Century Fox executive chairman, has moved into Jim Gianopulos‘ former office in Building 88 on the Fox lot.
Gianopulos, the longtime chairman and CEO of Fox’s film unit, was ousted in August, and sources confirm to THR that Murdoch has taken over the digs while maintaining an office in the executive tower across the street. He likely will divide his office time to be closer to the film unit, now run by Stacey Snider.
The change comes on the heels of another Murdoch exec move on the East Coast. Murdoch’s father, Rupert Murdoch, also exec chairman of 21st Century Fox, has been making use of the office of Roger Ailes, the fired Fox News chairman. Meanwhile, back on the Fox lot, Lachlan’s brother, 21st Century Fox CEO James, likely will take an office in the film group, but it’s not yet clear where.
