During that time, he has supervised the development of movies including The Nice Guys, Tomb Raider, and The Meg, as well as the upcoming projects Magic Mike: The Last Dance, Barbie, The Meg 2, and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

Pictures, stated in a joint statement, “This new leadership team marks a new era at Warner Bros. Pictures.”

All of these CEOs are exceptionally bright, gifted, and intuitive.

Cate, Peter, and Sheila are a powerful development executive trio with complementary networks and skill sets. Having assembled this group, Warner Bros. Pictures is in good shape to carry on its successful 100-year history.
