LONDON — Kirk D’Amico’s Myriad Pictures hired Marion Pilowsky as head of international production.

She will be based in London and spearhead the expansion of the sales, financing and production company’s filmmaking activities in Europe and further afield. She will report to L.A.-based president of production Lucas Foster.

Pilowsky was most recently the head of acquisitions at United Intl. Pictures. Previously she set up the production investment division at Australian pay TV outfit PMP, where she backed pics from Oz directors including Gregor Jordan, John Polson and Rowan Wilson.

According to D’Amico, Myriad’s L.A.-based topper, the company will shoot five British pics in the coming year.

Myriad’s upcoming international projects include “Ripley Underground,” the second book in Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley trilogy, which Roger Spottiswoode will direct. Project is in turnaround from Fox.
