Development VP to ankle current post, replaces Shue
Dana Goldberg will ankle as veepee at the Barry Levinson/Paula Weinstein Baltimore/Spring Creek Prods. and has inked to join Oz-owned Village Roadshow Pictures as development veepee.
She’ll replace Dennis Shue, who resigned from VRP last week, citing creative differences with production prexy Bernie Goldmann. The latter was, installed early this year after VRP signed an ambitious, five-year co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros.
Goldberg “is an incredibly smart and well-respected development executive,” said Goldmann. “Now at Village Roadshow she’ll have the opportunity to work for a company that’s a financier and a buyer and get that view of the business.”
Goldberg, who’ll start at VRP in late September, spent two years with Levinson’s Baltimore Pictures, and then stayed on for another year after the company merged with Weinstein’s Spring Creek. Projects she has worked on include “Manhigh” and “IQ 83,” which is now set up at DreamWorks.
Shue came to VRP from Plan B Entertainment, the film production company headed by Bruce Berman before he took over as Village Roadshow CEO late last year. He has also worked at Alec Baldwin’s Castle Rock-based production company, and at Witt-Thomas Films.
