Peter Kang is one of the first three Asian American creative executives to rise to the level of President of a film studio. At Fox, he recently launched the acclaimed Planet of the Apes and Maze Runner franchises with several other groundbreaking films in tow. Specializing in book-to-film adaptations, he acquired the rights and packaged such bestsellers as Gone Girl, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Blind Side, among others. Later this year, Kang will unveil a new slate of exciting films from Lionsgate. Over his 20 year career, he has worked with such filmmakers as Robert Zemeckis, Oliver Stone, Paul Feig, Matt Reeves, and Baz Luhrmann among others. He was also instrumental in the casting of Jamie Chung, Ki Hong Lee, and Henry Golding early in their careers.
