Relativity Media Extends Tooley Contract
Ryan Kavanaugh, CEO of Relativity Media, LLC, announced today that RML has extended the contract of its President of Production, Tucker Tooley. Under this new pact, Tooley will serve as President of Production through 2011. Along with Kavanaugh, Tooley has helped Relativity become one of Hollywood's preeminent film hubs, and with his creative team has built the company's Single Picture Films Division into a full-fledged studio, fully financing and producing 8 to10 pictures a year with a diverse slate of projects. Tooley also oversees Rogue Pictures, the production banner recently acquired by Relativity from Universal.
"Tucker's experience and innate knowledge of the industry has been invaluable to Relativity's success," said Kavanaugh. "He has overseen, developed and brought to the screen a great slate of Relativity movies and we look forward to working with him for years to come."
"I'm extremely proud of what we've accomplished. Working with Ryan has been incredibly inspiring and fun," said Tooley. "And with the team we have assembled, I'm confident we will continue to grow our slate and hit our benchmarks for the years to come. What is so different about Relativity is that we and those that work with us, including filmmakers and talent, enjoy working here. It creates an atmosphere that promotes growth from all sides."
Tucker Tooley began his producing career in 1997 and over the course of the next decade produced or oversaw more than 30 films before joining Relativity as Head of Production. Quickly Tooley was promoted to President of Production.
