Jennifer Todd, who partnered with sister Suzanne for the past 13 years in Team Todd, has been appointed president of motion pictures at The Mark Gordon Company. Todd becomes a partner in Mark Gordon’s company along with his TV president Deb Spera.
Todd and her sibling are coming off Alice In Wonderland, and were also producers on Across the Universe, the Austin Powers films, Memento and Prime. Gordon said that Todd has taste and relationships that will help the company. Gordon, who built a powerhouse TV company that generates Grey’s Anatomy, Criminals Minds and others, has been building feature momentum that includes the upcoming Bill Condon-directed biopic of Richard Pryor for Columbia Pictures, the Tobey Maguire-Laura Linney-starrer The Details and the Jake Gyllenhaal-starrer Source Code. Gordon just aligned with Management 360 to form the film company MG/360 and yesterday made a New Line deal for a Private Benjamin remake that will be developed for Anna Faris. Todd will spearhead a feature team that includes senior vice president Bryan Zuriff and she will continue an association on projects she and her sister have percolating.
