20th Century Studios, previously called 20th Century Fox, has announced that veteran executive Steve Asbell will be the new President of Production. He will be replacing Emma Watts after she stepped down from her role in the studio and will report to Chief Creative Officer Alan Horn and Co-Chairman Alan Bergman.

Asbell has been working with the studio since 2002, helping shape some major titles for them. He has recently worked on major projects such as Logan, The Wolverine, Ford v. Ferrari, and The Martian. He currently oversees the production of Kenneth Branagh's Murder On The Orient Express follow-up Death on The Nile, and Ridley Scott's period drama The Last Duel starring Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

Hopefully, Asbell can continue the success he has seen in recent years and helps 20th Century Studios come out of the rut that they seem to be currently in. They need successes such as The Martian and Ford v. Ferrari to help create more products to go see, which will benefit theaters greatly. This will help 20th Century Studios stay relevant, make Disney happier, and give theaters great movies for people to see. It seems like a win for everyone to me.
