'Ultimatum' exec leaves Universal

  • Matt's quoted in a story from Variety about Universal exec Jon Gordon leaving the studio:

    Jon Gordon is ankling as Universal production prexy less than a year since joining the studio after spending 15 years at Miramax.

    U has no plans to replace him; Donna Langley will be the sole production prexy at the studio.

    Gordon declined comment on his future plans, but he retains some ties to film talent. Among the U projects he was overseeing is Matt Damon starrer "The Bourne Ultimatum."

    "I first met him on 'Good Will Hunting' when he was at Miramax, so I started getting script notes from him 11 years ago and we remain good friends," Damon said on Thursday. "He's the person in the business whose opinion I value most."
