As the acquisition of Fox from The Walt Disney Company was completed this week, the entertainment behemoth has begun the process of deciding what parts of their newly acquired businesses they do and don’t want to continue. The first of these decisions that has seemingly been made is that the Fox 2000 label, headed by executive Elizabeth Gabler, will be retired.
The division of the company will cease to exist after the release of Woman in the Window by Joe Wright this October. Any projects set up at the label that remained in development may no longer move forward. It still remains unclear what waits for Gabler and her team.
The Fox 2000 label was most well known for producing mid-budget range movies for the studio with some of their more popular tiles including Walk the Line, The Fault In Our Stars, The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me.
Other notable films from the label include Hidden Figures, which grossed $235 million worldwide and was nominated for three Academy Awards, and recent films like Love, Simon and The Hate U Give.
Gabler’s division would seem a strong fit, but Disney will have 11 film labels and at some point, things get redundant. Though those who followed the elegant Gabler’s career will surely feel differently, because her slates reflected her taste.
