As Kathleen Kennedy transitions to running George Lucas's Lucasfilm empire in San Francisco, her husband and partner Frank Marshall is making changes at their Kennedy/Marshall production company. Marshall, the new sole head of the company, is adding a new production president, development executive Grey Rembert.

Rembert started out in development, with Kennedy and Marshall at Amblin Entertainment, and later, DreamWorks, and most recently served as Senior VP of Development for Graham King's GK Films, where she worked for six years on such films as "Hugo," "The Town," "The Tourist," "The Rum Dairy" and "Young Victoria."

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Grey joining me at Kennedy/Marshall,” said Marshall. “She is a talented, seasoned professional and it is a pleasure to be reunited since she began her career working for me and Kathy at Amblin.”

Marshall has just produced his fourth "Bourne" movie, Tony Gilroy’s "The Bourne Legacy," which opens Friday. And Kennedy/Marshall is currently in post-production on Steven Spielberg’s upcoming November release "Lincoln" with DreamWorks, where they have a longstanding first-look film deal. While the fourth "Jurassic Park" is in development, like many producers these days K/M have also moved into television, games, independent films, documentaries and digital media. They recently closed a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios.

Marshall gave more details to THR.
