Disney Retains Some Fox Studio Executives

Disney said a number of top executives from Fox’s film studio will remain with the company after it closes its deal to buy the majority of Fox’s assets, including the studio.

Emma Watts, vice chairman of 20th Century Fox, Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula, who head up Fox Searchlight Pictures, and Elizabeth Gabler, president of production for Fox 2000, all will stay on with Disney, reporting to Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios.

One executive who wasn’t mentioned in the announcement was Stacey Snider, Fox’s film chair. Given her experience running both Fox’s studio as well as Universal Pictures, it will be interesting to see where she lands.
