Weinberg will raise the Bar

Exec to work on developing writers

HOLLYWOOD — Todd Komarnicki’s management/production shingle Guy Walks Into a Bar has hired manager Matthew Weinberg, formerly of Industry Entertainment.

Weinberg has been tapped to expand the company’s Bar Management division and will focus primarily on the company’s core business of developing writers and moving their material into and through production.

Weinberg began his career in 1994 by founding Weiny Bro Prods. with brother Aaron; they produced the indie feature “Glory Daze” and set up development deals. He formed a relationship with Nick Wechsler at Addis-Wechsler, now Industry Entertainment, where Weinberg launched his career as a lit manager, working with Anthony Zuiker (“CSI”) and Charles Randolph (“The Life of David Gale”).

Komarnicki and company partner Jon Berg are producing “Elf” for New Line from an original screenplay by Bar client David Berenbaum. Other Bar projects include an untitled John Dillinger project at Warner Bros., produced with Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney, with David Mamet scripting and Kimberly Peirce set to direct; “Fat Chance,” with Casey Silver Prods. at Universal; and Intermedia’s “Number One Girl,” written by Bar client Molly McAlpine.

Komarnicki recently directed “Resistance” with Bill Paxton and Julia Ormond. He is adapting “The Rising” for Sony and writing the original TV pilot “Filter” for Joel Silver, WBTV and NBC. He also will direct his original thriller “Sleepwalker,” to begin production in late 2003.

“I couldn’t be more excited to work with such a talented and committed group of people,” Weinberg said.
