Disney Studios Hires New Head

On the heels of a costly film flop that led Walt Disney Studios chairman Rich Ross to resign, Disney CEO Bob Iger has entrusted former Warner Bros. chief Alan Horn to put things back in order as Ross’s successor. A seasoned film exec, Horn saw Warner Bros. through a decade of blockbuster success, overseeing moneymaking projects like the phenomenal Harry Potter franchise. Horn will officially move into his new office on June 11 and will take over worldwide operations for Disney Studios, including production, distribution and marketing for Pixar, Marvel, and DreamWorks studios.
