Amazon Studios Head of Production John Lynch Exits

Lynch had been with the company since 2012

John Lynch is exiting his post as head of production and operations at Amazon Studios, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.

Lynch had been with the company since 2012 but notified the staff about his departure on Friday.  A spokesperson for Amazon declined to comment.

In June, head of marketing and distribution Bob Berney left the company following the expiration of his four-year contract. And in 2018, Jason Ropell left his post as head of motion pictures — he was replaced by Ted Hope, Julie Rapaport and Matt Newman. Roy Price exited in late 2017, at which point Jennifer Salke stepped in to run film and TV operations.

Amazon Studios’ releases this year include “The Report,” “The Aeronauts,” “Late Night,” “Brittany Runs a Marathon,” “Seberg” and “Honey Boy,” some of which are getting awards buzz. Other recent releases include “Suspiria,” “Beautiful Boy,” “The Big Sick” and “Manchester by the Sea.”

Variety was the first to report the news.
