Brian Grazer set to replace Brett Ratner as Oscar Producer after fallout

Brian Grazer has accepted the Oscar producing gig and will step in to replace Brett Ratner as producer of the 84th Academy Awards.

Sources confirmed that an official press release is forthcoming. As THR first reported, Academy President Tom Sherak moved quickly to reboot the venerable awards show, which has lost one of its producers as well as host Eddie Murphy, who announced Wednesday that he is withdrawing from the show in the wake of Ratner’s departure.

Grazer, a producer of the upcoming J Edgar, was at the top of the list of producers that Sherak approached to come aboard and co-produce the show along with the previously announced Don Mischer.

A spokesperson for Grazer declined comment as did a separate spokesperson for the Academy.
