Hollywood producer named co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios

Hollywood producer named co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios

January 13, 2016 | By Chris Kerr




Activision has named Academy Award-nominated Hollywood producer, Stacey Sher, co-president of its film and TV production studio, Activision Blizzard Studios. 

Sher, who has 45 producer credits to her name and has worked on a number of critically acclaimed movies including Gattaca, Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Erin Brockovich, and more recently, The Hateful Eight, will co-lead the studio with former Disney exec, Nick van Dyk. 

The Call of Duty and Destiny publisher opened its media production arm in November last year, and is planning on creating a number of television shows and movies based on its major properties.

Activision Blizzard Studios is already hard at work creating Skylanders Academy, an animated TV show based on the popular video game, while World of Warcraft - currently being produced by Legendary Studios, not Activision - will also make its silver screen debut later this year 

Van Dyk believes Activision's "unique" model, built on the back of a huge franchise library and decades of fan engagement, will allow the company to take on traditional studios.
