Annapurna Pictures President Marc Weinstock is leaving the company.

The executive had only been with Megan Ellison’s shop for two years, and is said to be parting ways for another opportunity, an individual familiar with the company said.

There are no plans to staff a replacement, and his duties will be redistributed among remaining leadership. The executive came to Annapurna from 20th Century Fox.

The company, which also has a TV division, is on the verge of releasing the Boots Riley Sundance hit “Sorry to Bother You” with Lakeith Stanfield, Armie Hammer and Tessa Thompson.

It also has several anticipated titles in the can, including “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” starring Cate Blanchett and directed by Richard Linklater; “If Beale Street Could Talk” from Barry Jenkins; and Karyn Kusama and Nicole Kidman’s cop thriller “Destroyer.”

Deadline first reported the news of Weinstock’s exit.
