Jon Glickman is in talks to become the next CEO of Miramax Films. a post that has been vacant since Bill Block exited last fall.
Glickman left MGM and formed Panoramic, a monied venture that would be acquired as part of the deal if it makes, our sister publication THR reported and Deadline confirmed. We’ve heard there has been at least one more candidate, so it is not clear at this moment if the deal will close.

A well liked seasoned production executive, Glickman ran Spyglass for a decade before his run at MGM. He was very involved in the Daniel Craig James Bond films, and the Creed films.
Block’s contract was not renewed by Miramax, which is 51% owned by beIN and 49% by Paramount Global. While the company’s profits grew and films like the Halloween relaunch, The Gentlemen, The Beekeeper, and the Best Picture nominated Alexander Payne-directed The Holdovers, Block left when his contract was up, and the expectation was that Miramax would focus on exploiting and remaking projects from the library of the company hatched by Harvey and Bob Weinstein.
