Kathy Greenberg has moved from Sony-based Jim Henson Pictures to Working Title, stepping into the positions once filled by Anna DeRoy and Rebecca Hughes.
Greenberg has been hired as VP of production and development, reporting to Working Title president of production Liza Chazin and company co-chairmen Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
Greenberg will be overseeing the development and production of several projects including the comedy “Flat Stanley,” which John Carls is producing.
“Working Title is making some of the highest-quality films in the business, and I’m really proud to be part of it,” Greenberg said. “It’s also exciting to be here at a time when Polygram is expanding and building its own distribution arm.” Polygram officially announced its distribution arm two weeks ago.
“It’s great to have found someone who fits in so well with our sensibilities,” Chasin said of Greenberg.
Greenberg served at Henson for a year and a half, where she worked on Caroline Thompson’s “Buddy,” which stars Rene Russo and bows June 6 from Columbia Pictures.
During her stint, she also worked on “King of Elves,” which writer-director Wally Wolodarsky is adapting from Phillip Dick’s short story; a new, as-yet-untitled Muppets movie; and a remake of the 1966 Hayley Mills vehicle “The Trouble With Angels.” That project is being adapted by Laurice Elewahny for producer Denise DiNovi.
Before Henson, Greenberg worked two years at IndieProd Co. where she worked on the Sharon Stone starrer “The Quick and the Dead” and “Blue Streak,” which is in development at TriStar with screenwriters Jeff Reno and Ron Osborn.
She began her career in film in 1992 as a story editor for ITC Entertainment, where she worked on John Dahl’s “The Last Seduction” and Rusty Cundieff’s “Fear of a Black Hat.” She previously worked as a copywriter at an advertising agency in the Midwest.
