“With more than 20 years of industry experience, Peter is a seasoned executive with considerable expertise in the world of production. In his new role, he will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the feature film production cycle for the Amazon MGM Studios film group,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios, wrote in an email to staff Friday.

At Spyglass, Oillataguerre worked on films such as Scream, Hellraiser and The Upside, and also worked on TV series Project Runway. Prior to Spyglass, he worked at Universal Studios and MGM Studios, with projects including James Bond features Skyfall and No Time to Die, as well as Creed.

Earlier this year, Amazon gave Ben Affleck’s Air a global theatrical release, which was significant as streamers had been reluctant to grant traditional releases to their properties in the past. The studio has multiple titles due out later this year, including Totally Killer streaming Oct. 6. It is giving Emerald Fennell’s festival feature Saltburn a limited release on Nov. 24.
