Goldfine to Trimark

Phillip B. Goldfine, who was among the exec victims when New Line Cinema purged three VPs last November, is expected to resurface on Monday as VP of Trimark Pictures, sources said Thursday.

Though Trimark reps had no comment, Goldfine is expected to serve as an integral part in increasing Trimark’s production slate from the present six-to- 10 pic range to about 15 over the next year.

Goldfine would report to Andrew Hersh, Trimark’s senior VP of production. He is expected to acquire and develop material for the indie, which has lately diversified from horror pix to Westerns like the upcoming Rob Lowe starrer “Frank and Jesse.”

Goldfine’s entry into Trimark’s top echelon comes at an opportune time, since the outfit’s prexy Roger A. Burlage ankled last week to head Live Entertainment as prexy/CEO, leaving Trimark’s chairman of the board Mark Amin as acting prexy and CEO. Trimark posted $ 60.6 million in sales for the year ended June 30, 1993 .

Before holding down the VP spot at New Line for 2 1/2 years, Goldfine held a similar post at Corsair Pictures and also served as in-house development consultant for Dino De Laurentiis Communications. Immediately before taking the New Line job, Goldfine was creative affairs director for the Fox Night at the Movies production unit.
