Stephen Moore, Aardman Animations' head of features/COO, has ankled his post now that his two-year contract is up, according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Aardman co-founder David Sproxton will take over Moore's role in the company.
The former 20th Century Fox president of international was hired in January 2006 to help conclude Aardman's distribution deal with DreamWorks and secure a new agreement. In April 2007, Moore sealed an exclusive three-year, first-look deal with Sony Pictures.
Moore will move on to work on several projects he has in development.
