Touchstone ups Ros to senior VP of production

Jordi Ros, who has supervised such projects as “Ransom” in the past three years as an executive at Touchstone, has been promoted to senior vice president, production, for the Disney banner.

Ros will continue to supervise all aspects of development and production produced under the Touchstone Pictures banner. He will report to Touchstone president Donald De Line.

Ros has served as production VP for Touchstone for the past 1-1/2 years. His upcoming projects include “Eaters of the Dead,” based on the book by Michael Crichton and to be directed by John McTiernan; “A Civil Action,” to be directed by Steve Zaillian for Robert Redford’s Wildwood Prods.; “The Horse Whisperer,” to be directed by Redford, from the bestselling novel by Nicholas Evans; and Martin Scorsese’s “Kundun.”

“It has been tremendous fun working with Donald De Line and Joe Roth, and I am grateful for their continued support,” Ros said. “I don’t think there has ever been a better time to be an executive at this company, and I look forward to continuing to be a part of their team.”

Ros joined Disney in 1993 as a creative executive for Touchstone, and was promoted to director of production the following year. Before that, he had worked for three years with Dawn Steel and her Disney-based company, Steel Pictures. Among the projects he was involved in developing were “Cool Runnings.”
