A24 founding partner John Hodges announced that he will be leaving the indie studio that he helped launch nearly six years ago, the company announced Monday.
Fellow founding partners Daniel Katz and David Fenkel will continue to oversee the NYC-based indie studio, which has seen great success with Oscar-winning films such as “Room,” “Ex Machina” and last year’s surprise Best Picture winner “Moonlight.”
Hodges, who previously served as head of production at the indie production company Big Beach (“Little Miss Sunshine”), did not announce any immediate career plans.
“John has been a trusted partner who helped conceive A24 and for that we will always be grateful,” the studio said in a statement. “Since then his contributions to growing the company have been invaluable and we can’t wait to see what he does next.”
Added Hodges, “I am incredibly proud of the company we created and of the amazing team at A24 that has been integral to its success. Over the past six years I have been fortunate to work with a diverse group of talented storytellers across film and TV and look forward to continuing those collaborations in my future endeavors.”
