Dune Entertainment Chairman Greg Coote Dies At 72

Former Dune Entertainment chairman Greg Coote passed away, age 72. During his tenure as the head of Dune, Coote co-financed more than sixty 20th Century Fox movies, including James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’. He was also founding president and CEO of Village Roadshow Pictures and oversaw its partnership with Warner Bros., which resulted in highly successful ‘The Matrix’ and other films.

Coote was an Australian native but was based in the U.S. During his long career, the veteran producer also served as managing director of Ten Network, and worked as president of Columbia Pictures’ International Theatrical division, where he oversaw worldwide acquisition, marketing and distribution.

In December, he launched Dragonslate, a joint venture with Malaysian producer Leon Tan, which aimed to take advantage of the expanding Asian media development and production sector. Last year, he also formed a $50 million film fund with David Calvert-Jones.

Coote was a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and served on a number of advisory boards, including the Bona Film Group of China and the Singapore Government’s Media Development Authority.

A memorial service will be held July 2 in Santa Monica, while a service in Sydney, Australia will be held at a date to be announced.
