In addition to managing anchorage funds, Ulrich also serves as chairman of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the James Bond franchise production studio.
Representatives from Ulrich and Anchorage have not yet responded to Variety’s request for comment.
According to a June lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court, Perry claimed that she was assaulted by Ulrich on July 25, 2019 in her room at the Mercer Hotel. The complaint was withdrawn on July 2.
The complaint alleges that the plaintiff complained of forced physical contact and dissenting sexual activity.

Ulrich was given a much better position in 2018, when Gary Barber, the former CEO of MGM, was fired due to protests from Hollywood insiders.
As chairman, Ulrich formed an interim management team through the “CEO’s Office” at the time, and later appointed veteran Hollywood producer Michael Di Luca to head the studio’s film department
