Lionsgate will be merging its production and acquisition departments into a single content banner. The new Lead Content Group will be headed up by Motion Picture Group President Nathan Kahane.

Meanwhile, Charlotte Koh and Lauren Bixby will lead Acquisitions and Co-Productions.“Lionsgate has grown aggressively over the last few years,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chair Joe Drake. “We now release approximately 50 new films every year across our wide theatrical release business, from our tentpoles like “John Wick: Chapter 4” and “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” to our more targeted theatrical business with movies like “Sisu” and “Fall,” including a vibrant multiplatform release pipeline that debuts over 30 films annually.”Lionsgate’s Jason Constantine has been named co-president, Motion Picture Group.

Constantine, who has driven acquisitions of the “John Wick,” “Expendables” and “Saw” franchises during his tenure at the studio, will report directly to Kahane and oversee creative strategy in both production and acquisitions.“In a business,” Drake continued, “where content is more valuable than ever, our strategy is to meet audiences across the globe wherever they consume entertainment with the movies they want to see.

Bringing internal development, acquisitions, and co-productions together in one unit enables us to reach the full potential of our philosophy and strategy as a studio.”Charlotte Koh will join the studio as executive vice president, Acquisitions and Co-Productions.
