After Arnon Milchan reconstituted New Regency with a new $500 million credit line and plans to reemerge at the helm with former Paramount production president Brad Weston as CEO, Alexandra Milchan has returned to the company as executive vice president of production. She will report to Weston. She is the daughter of Milchan, who owns 80% of New Regency, and she spent 13 years there, rising from assistant to senior executive, before leaving to become a producer.
“Alexandra has great relationships and a real passion for movies, and we are thrilled to have her back at New Regency,” Weston said. “She will play a central role as we work to return Regency to its roots, producing bold, filmmaker-driven pictures with a singular vision which will entertain audiences around the world.”
During Milchan’s earlier Regency stint, she worked on such films as the Jon Amiel-directed Copycat, Michael Mann-directed Heat, the Joel Schumacher-directed A Time To Kill and Curtis Hanson-directed L.A. Confidential. She left to start Emjag Productions, producing such films as the David Ayer-directed Street Kings, the Alexandre Aja-directed Mirrors, and the upcoming Walter Hill-directed Bullet to the Head, with Sylvester Stallone. She also developed The Wolf of Wall Street, which Martin Scorsese will direct with Leonardo DiCaprio for Red Granite and Appian Way; the Aja-directed The Space Pirate at Lionsgate, and an untitled Taylor Lautner project at New Regency.
