Having served as one of the producers of "American Hustle," he will now oversee development and production for Megan Ellison's company.

Jonathan Gordon is joining Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures as president of production.

He will oversee the development and production of Annapurna projects and report to Megan Ellison, who announced his appointment today.

Gordon, who has worked as an independent producer and executive, most recently produced American Hustle with Ellison, Charles Roven and Richard Suckle and Silver Linings Playbook with Bruce Cohen and Donna Gigliotti.

Prior to becoming a producer, Gordon was president of production at Universal Pictures and before that spent 15 years at Miramax Films, where his last position was co-president of production.

"I got to know Megan while working alongside her, Charles and Richard on American Hustle," Gordon said. "Megan has impeccable taste, is a gifted producer, and I saw firsthand how in Annapurna she has created the most daring, exciting and filmmaker-friendly environment in the business."

"After working closely with Jon on American Hustle, I was so impressed by him that I knew I needed to have him as part of Annapurna," Ellison said.
