Amy Pascal’s days as Sony Chair are numbered (the outgoing exec will officially step down in May), but her producing schedule for the next few years is already quite full.
Pascal will stay on as a producer for the (second) “Spider-Man” reboot, whose creative team now includes Marvel’s Kevin Feige. But just as notable are the female-centric films she plans to produce: the all-female “Ghostbusters,” whose cast was recently announced; the Angelina Jolie vehicle “Cleopatra,” the behind-the-scenes details of which were leaked in the Sony hack; another adaptation of “Little Women,” a novel whose adaptation by director Gillian Armstrong Pascal advocated for in the mid 1990s; and a live-action Barbie film.
Pascal will also oversee on the “Da Vinci Code” franchise, as well as the film-to-stage adaptations of “Tootsie,” “Groundhog Day,” and “This Is It,” the 2009 Sony doc chronicling Michael Jackson’s rehearsals before the singer’s planned comeback.
