STENSON MOVING UP

Touchstone taps new exec VP of production

Mike Stenson, the executive on productions such as “Crimson Tide” and “The Rock,” has been promoted to executive vice president of production for Touchstone Pictures.

Stenson had been an executive with Hollywood Pictures from its inception in 1989 until last September, when he moved over to Touchstone during the reorganization of the company’s production banners. He reports to Touchstone Pictures president Donald DeLine.

In Stenson’s new position, he will oversee all aspects of production and development on a variety of projects. Among them are “Armageddon,” to be directed by Michael Bay. He also will oversee two Caravan Pictures projects: “Six Days, Seven Nights,” to be directed by Ivan Reitman and starring Harrison Ford, and the comedy “Holy Man,” with Eddie Murphy attached.

At Hollywood, Stenson was involved in the production of such pics as “Mr. Holland’s Opus” and “Dangerous Minds” as well as “Tide” and “Rock.” He started at the banner as a creative exec, moved to director of creative affairs the following year, and to VP of production in 1992. He was named senior VP in 1995.
