American Hustle producer appointed as president of production.

Jonathan Gordon has joined Annapurna Pictures.

The Oscar-nominated producer most recently worked on American Hustle with Megan Ellison, Charles Roven and Richard Suckle.

Gordon will report to Ellison and oversee the development and production of Annapurna projects.

Prior to joining the company, Gordon worked as an independent producer and executive. He was president of production at Universal Pictures under Stacey Snider and previously spent 15 years with Harvey and Bob Weinstein at Miramax Films, working on the likes of Good Will Hunting and Dogma.

Gordon commented “Megan has impeccable taste, is a gifted producer, and I saw firsthand how in Annapurna she has created the most daring, exciting, and filmmaker friendly environment in the business.”

“After working closely with Jon on American Hustle, I was so impressed by him that I know I needed to have him as part of Annapurna. I have such respect and admiration for him as a producer and a friend, and I am thrilled that Jon has decided to join our team,” added Ellison.
