The percentage of filmmakers from underrepresented ethnic groups who were among the directors of the top 100 highest-grossing films at the box office in 2022 was 20.7% in 2022, according to the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. That’s down from a 15-year high of 27.3% in 2021. Female directors accounted for 9% among the top 100, down from 12.7% in 2021 but better than the 2.7% counted in 2007. “Industry advocates have made claims regarding their support for women – funding programs and fellowships, adding women to consideration lists for open jobs,” wrote Dr. Stacy L. Smith, founder of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. “Yet at the point when support matters most – hiring – there are still barriers that prevent women from working on the top movies released each year.”

Jeb Stuart (“Vikings: Valhalla”) is no longer showrunner of Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the “Assassin’s Creed” video game. The reason for the parting is a “difference in vision,” Stuart told Collider. “I think it was a little bit of a move of executives from LA to London, and it allowed the London group who, unfortunately, had to inherit my vision of what it was instead of getting to develop their own vision,” said Stuart of the project. “I think that’s fair. I know it’s going to be great whenever it comes out.”
