Michael de Luca, the president of production at Sony, proved true all the gossip that surrounded his taking the studio job.
No doubt responding to the actor's frontal-nude scenes in "Shame," producer Michael de Luca wrote, "He just makes you feel bad to have normal-sized genitalia." What has become of Amy Pascal, Michael Lynton, Mike de Luca and Tom Rothman since last November's cyberattack?
Other participants in the two-day Los Angeles gathering included Jenji Kohan, Mike De Luca, Nina Jacobson and Glen Mazzara.
It was that group - WME's Adriana Alberghetti, Beyond the Lights producer Stephanie Allain, CAA's Chris Andrews and Micah Green, Fifty Shades of Grey producer Mike De Luca, TheButler producer Cassian Elwes, The Black List founder Franklin Leonard, BET's Zola Mashariki, Pacific Standard co-founder Bruna Papandrea, UTA's Rena Ronson, former WME agent and Macro founder Charles King - that decided whom to invite to the October think tank.

Michael De Luca has officially signed a three-year first-look deal with Universal.
Last week, the news broke that De Luca would exit his post as as Sony's president of production (a job he's held since December 2013) to move to a producing role at Universal. De Luca, 49, has a longstanding relationship with Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley, going back to their days together at New Line Cinema, and he recently produced the hit Universal release Fifty Shades of Grey. In his new role, he'll continue to produce the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy while working on other projects he will bring to Universal.

Mike has been an incredible friend and mentor to me for many years, and I'm thrilled to have him on the lot with us." As president of production for Columbia Pictures, De Luca oversaw films including Pixels and Grimsby, as well as the Ron Howard film Inferno, the studio's remake with MGM of The Magnificent Seven and Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters. De Luca served as DreamWorks' Head of Production from 2001 to 2004, and earlier in his career, he spent seven years as President and COO of New Line Productions. "I feel incredibly grateful and honored to be returning to the Universal family and build on the wonderful production experiences I've already enjoyed there," said De Luca in a statement "Donna Langley is not only completely brilliant and inspired in her job but one of the best human beings I've ever had the privilege of knowing."
Michael De Luca Exits Sony for Universal Producing Deal
Michael De Luca has left Sony and is headed to Universal Pictures, where he is expected to sign a new producing deal. De Luca has a longstanding relationship with Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley, going back to their days together at New Line Cinema, and he recently produced the hit Universal release Fifty Shades of Grey. De Luca, who joined Sony as its president of production in December 2013, issued a statement Thursday evening. "I literally wish I could be in two places at once, but the opportunity to resume my producing career right now, including the possibility of continuing on the Fifty Shades trilogy, makes this the right choice for me at this unique moment in time. I look forward to continuing to work with Columbia on my existing productions there," read a statement from the now former president of production at Columbia Pictures. Sony motion picture group president Doug Belgrad issued a statement of his own, saying, "Mike will always be family to us. When Amy Pascal stepped down as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment in early February in the aftermath of the Sony hack, both De Luca and Belgrad were among those mentioned as possible replacements. The first Fifty Shades installment, which De Luca produced with Dana Brunetti and the book's author E.L. James, has grossed $564 million worldwide since it was released in February. De Luca spent the first half of his career in Hollywood's executive suites, rising to become president of production at New Line, and then in 2001 moving to DreamWorks, where he served a president of production until 2004. It was then that he became an independent producer, with a first-look deal at Sony's Columbia. He surprised many when he took the Sony production job in 2013, since, at the time, he was enjoying a successful run as a producer with critical and commercial hits like The Social Network, Moneyball and Captain Phillips. And, at the time, he'd already become involved with Universal's Dracula Untold and Fifty Shades. But the exec perch did offer a few things the life of an indie producer, even a successful one, lacks - stability and security. And with Pascal's future at the studio already attracting plenty of speculation - even before the hackers hit the studio in late 2014 - De Luca may have seen other exec opportunities opening up at the studio. Moving his base of operations to Universal would mark a reunion of sorts for De Luca and Langley if they hadn't already been working together on Fifty Shades, which Langley closely oversaw for the studio.
