Exec grows into senior veep slot
NEW YORK — Miramax Films has upped Julie Goldstein to senior vice president of production and development from veepee.
In her new post, Goldstein will oversee films through all stages of development and production. She will also continue to manage a number of the company’s writer and director accounts.
Goldstein joined Miramax five years ago as an executive assistant/story editor in the office of co-chairman Harvey Weinstein.
“Julie has been an integral member of the Miramax team for a number of years,” said Harvey Weinstein. “She has a knack for finding quality projects and for fighting to make the films she works on be the best they can be.”
Among Goldstein’s production credits are “Emma,” “Cosi,” “Children of the Revolution,” “Last of the High Kings” and the upcoming “B. Monkey” directed by Michael Radford. She also co-produced the soundtrack to “Il Postino” as well as the TV special “Poetry, Passion, the Postman, the Poetic Return of Pablo Neruda.” Goldstein is currently an exec producer of John Madden’s “Shakespeare in Love,” and is supervising pre-production on “Roofus,” an English-language adaptation of the French film “Didier,” and the Jane Campion project “Holy Smoke.”
She also serves as exec producer for the upcoming release “The Mighty” starring Sharon Stone, a project she brought into the company.
