CEO of Legendary Pictures Thomas Tull has resigned from his position. After selling Legendary to the Wanda Group in early 2016, Tull's approach to projects caused frustration among the new owners. The Hollywood Reporter specifically cited The Great Wall and Pacific Rim 2 (Uprising) as projects in which Tull's management left something to be desired.
Although Tull is no longer Legendary's commander & chief, he will continue to be a producer on what is being called the "Monsterverse" (Godzilla: King of Monsters, Godzilla vs. Kong) and the upcoming Dune by Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve.
Wanda CEO Jack Gao will oversee Legendary Pictures until a new lead is hired. Meanwhile, Tull will focus on his media based Tull Investment Group. We wish Mr. Tull well after 17 years of developing action packed monster mayhem and heroes and we hope his work on the Monsterverse will be for the best.
