Paramount Pictures’ Elizabeth Raposo Steps Down


Long-time Paramount Pictures executive Elizabeth Raposo is stepping down at the studio, Variety has learned.

Raposo has served as the president of production for Paramount since 2017, where he has been Studio Shepherd for all franchise content and event-based intellectual properties. The news of Rapaso’s exit was announced by newly formed motion picture group chair Emma Watts.

“Elizabeth Raposo is leaving Paramount Pictures. He has been an invaluable part of the Paramount family for 15 years, including the last three years in his role as the chairman of the production of our motion picture team, ”Watts wrote in a memo on Thursday.

Raposo worked in concert with the likes of Lorenzo Di Bonavantura, the creator of the massive “Transformers” series. Under Jim Gianopulos, he was known as a more business-facing executive meant to counteract the efforts of other motion picture labels such as Paramount Animation and the low-budget slates of Paramount Players.

Watts, seen as a savior for veteran studios, teamed up with Gianopulos and other pre-20th century Foxes this summer. In his memorandum, he praised Reposo’s contributions, including award films and family fare. Raposo’s future plans are unclear.

“With her great taste and incredible talent relationships, Liz has been instrumental in many of the company’s past and recent successes, including ‘Sonic the Hedgehog,'” Rocketman, ‘A Quiet Place,’ “Mission: Impossible-Fallout” and Bumblebee. Are included. As well as the latest Star Trek movies and the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, among many others. We wholeheartedly thank Liz for her years of service and countless contributions to the studio, and wish her the very best.
