Schorr exits Sandollar for slot as Mark veep

Sandollar veepee Robin Schorr has ankled the Sony Pictures Entertainment-based production company to become veepee of production for Laurence Mark Prods. at Hollywood Pictures, sources said.

The move signals a stepped-up development effort by Mark, just as the company pushes several key movies toward production in the first quarter of 1994.

LMP is in pre-production on Steve Miner’s “Tempted” for Hollywood Pictures and is prepping Renny Harlin’s pirate pic “Cutthroat Island” for Carolco.

Agency sources said Michael Douglas has entered into formal negotiations to star in “Cutthroat Island.”.

A longtime colleague of Walt Disney Studios chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg, publicist-turned-producer Mark currently is completing executive producer chores on “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.”

Schorr will report to company president of creative affairs John Baldecchi, who is key to the company’s effort to expand its development slate.

Laurence Mark Prods. has significantly broadened its slate of family movies, including the recent acquisitions of the Newbury Award-winning children’s novel “Maniac McGee,” remake rights to “The Little Fugitive” and screenwriter Monte Merrick’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist,” in partnership with “Huck Finn” filmmaker Stephen Sommers.

Before Sandollar, Schorr was manager of movies for television at Fox Night at the Movies and served as director of development for Winona Ryder’s Dreamlover Prods. at 20th Century Fox.
