John Fox Leaving 20th Century Fox

He will depart his post as vice president of production and run production at John Davis' company, Davis Entertainment.

John Fox is exiting his current post as vice president of production at 20th Century Fox to run production for John Davis’ company Davis Entertainment, which has a deal with 20th Century.

It’s a natural fit, since Fox has overseen several of Davis’ films, including Marmaduke and the upcoming Jim Carrey summer comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Fox also worked on Davis’ Norbit when an executive at DreamWorks.

"John Fox and I have worked closely together on many films, both here at our home studio and at other studios," Davis said. "I couldn’t be more pleased that someone of John’s experience and passion is coming on board."

Fox arrived at 20th Century Fox in 2008. He’s supervised production on a number of features, including Date Night, The Tooth Fairy, as well as the upcoming Popper’s Penguins, The Sitter and Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.
