Biography

Fille de Larry Ellison et vice-présidente d'Oracle Corporation, sœur du producteur de cinéma David Ellison, elle fait ses premiers pas dans la production en 2007 avant d'être nommée à la production associée de True Grit en 2010. Elle fonde sa propre société Annapurna Pictures en 2011 et, au festival de Cannes 2012, annonce la création du distributeur Panorama Media, chargé des ventes internationales des productions Annapurna telles Zero Dark Thirty, Foxcatcher, Her et, vraisemblablement, les deux suites à Terminator depuis qu'Ellison a racheté les droits de la franchise à Pacificor, une société de rachat de crédit, qui détenait les droits depuis février 2010. Lors de la remise en vente des droits, à partir du Jeudi 12 mai 2011, Megan Ellison et Lions Gate Film se sont affrontés férocement pour devenir le nouveau détenteur des droits. Megan Ellison les a récupérés pour 20 millions de dollars. Les droits reviendront d'office à James Cameron en 2018.
