Ruth Vitale is leaving her post as president of First Look Studios effective April 30, the first earthquake at the indie studio since First Look Pictures CEO Henry Winterstern's abrupt departure March 5. "(First Look parent) Prentice Capital has been nothing but wonderful," said Vitale in an interview Wednesday afternoon with the Hollywood Reporter. Vitale will oversee the April 13 wide release of the animated Cartoon Network series adaptation "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters" and will consult on First Look theatrical releases, including the omnibus film "Paris j'taime" and other films. She said she has no other current plans after her departure but described her resignation as a "mutual decision." Gregg Goldstein reports.
