Deadline reports that Greg Noveck, SVP of Creative Affairs at DC Entertainment is to leave that position over the next three months time to work on his own producing career, according to an internal memo circulated at the company.
A Bleeding Cool reader told me last year that, sitting next to Greg on a plane, that Greg said that as a Paul Levitz hire, he didn’t think he’d be long at DC.
And while he was involved with a stack of projects at DC that were turned into media projects, such as the recent DC MMO and the adaptation of The Losers, he was blamed by some for stalling a number.
Usually by the creators of said properties of course…
A DC spokesman confirmed to Bleeding Cool that, yes, an internal document had been distributed internally to the effect that, yes, six years after being hired by Paul Levitz to comandeer the exploitation of the DC Comics library, Greg was now leaving DC, transitioning out over the next three months. And also to point out that Greg is writing one of the upcoming Red prequels – the comics-to-film adaptation of Red being one of Greg’s passions at the company.
