HBO Pix taps Halpern

Michael Halpern has been tapped to replace Jenno Topping as VP at HBO Pictures beginning Jan. 6, according to sources. Halpern will report to HBO Pics exec VP Richard Waltzer and the division’s new prexy John Matoian.

Halpern has spent the past 4-1/2 years as executive VP of features at Spring Creek Prods., working with prexy Paula Weinstein. His jump to HBO lends further fuel to the rumors that Weinstein has plans to merge with filmmaker Barry Levinson in his Baltimore Pictures.

Topping departed HBO in late November to team with producer-director Betty Thomas in an unnamed production company venture.
