Hurd banners consolidated

Boyle tapped Valhalla prexy

Producer Gale Anne Hurd’s two production banners, Pacific Western and Valhalla, have folded into Valhalla Motion Pictures.

Barbara Boyle has been named company prexy and Julie Thomson, former head of business affairs, has been upped to chief financial officer.

In her new post, Thomson will be responsible for the financial planning and budgeting of the company’s filmed projects, as well as supervising the company’s financial agreements with its producing partners, filmmakers and talent.

Besides the consolidation, Hurd has also entered into a five-year, first look development, production and distribution agreement with Kinowelt USA.
