While it has already been announced that Kroll will be an EP on the upcoming Oct. 5 Bradley Cooper movie A Star Is Born starring Cooper and Lady Gaga, her upcoming slate will include the sci-fi action thriller Nemesis, with producers Ridley Scott and Jules Daly; the YA drama The Selection with producers Denise Di Novi and Pouya Shahbazian; an untitled comedy starring Sandra Bullock, who will also produce with Michael Bostick; and the action thriller The Six Billion Dollar Man, soon going into production starring Mark Wahlberg, who also produces alongside Stephen Levinson, Bill Gerber, Scott Faye and Karen Lauder. Six Billion Dollar Man was previously located at TWC-Dimension before the company came apart in recent months. Six Billion Dollar Man is scheduled to come out on May 31, 2019.

“My passion for film and television and for telling great stories is not only the cornerstone of my wonderful career, but has also been a huge part of my life since I was a young girl enthralled by the moving image,” stated Kroll. “I am excited to be collaborating in this new capacity with amazing, visionary filmmakers, many of whom I have known and worked with, and to also champion new and unique voices. This is just the beginning and I am thrilled about our slate of films and our incredible filmmaking partners.”

Kroll is also serving as EP on Edward Norton’s Motherless Brooklyn, inspired by Jonathan Lethem’s award-winning book, which Norton adapted for the screen. This project was also announced under her watch back in January when the news broke about her segue from the executive to producer offices on the lot. Kroll is teaming with producers Norton, William Migliore, Gigi Pritzker and Rachel Shane, and EPs Michael Bederman, Adrian Alperovich, Robert F. Smith, Brian Sheth and Daniel Nader. Currently in production, the film stars Norton, Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Willem Dafoe and Alec Baldwin.

In addition, Kroll is an EP on The Goldfinch, the film version of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, being directed by John Crowley, and starring Ansel Elgort and Nicole Kidman. Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson are producing, and Mari Jo Winkler-Ioffreda is also serving as an executive producer. Goldfinch will open on Oct. 11, 2019.

Rounding out Kroll & Co Entertainment, are SVP of Development and Production Jennifer Malloy, Creative Executive Olivia Heighten, longtime Kroll staffer Chelsea Bradshaw as Operations / Production Executive, and administrative assistant Nicole Kraft.
