Revolution-ary change for Bernstein

'Gate' veep ducks out

Lions Gate exec Scott Bernstein will join Revolution Studios’ creative team, reporting to Todd Garner.

Bernstein will work alongside Derek Dauchy, involved in all aspects of development on Revolution projects, Garner said.

Revolution has no official titles, but Bernstein fills a vacancy in Revolution’s small hierarchy created when Greg Silverman ankled to Warner Bros.

“Scott has great taste in material and an excellent reputation in the creative community,” said Garner. “We are pleased to welcome him to the team at Revolution.”

At Lions Gate, Bernstein was veepee of production and development, acquiring new projects and overseeing development and production.

Over the past year, he supervised production of “Monster’s Ball,” directed by Marc Forster and starring Billy Bob Thornton and the Oscar-nominated Halle Berry, as well as “Rules of Attraction,” directed by Roger Avary and starring James Van Der Beek.

Most recently, he has been overseeing the James Foley-directed “Confidence,” to star Ed Burns, with production starting April 2; “Time Killer,” starring Samuel L. Jackson; and “Return to Morality,” written by Jeff Lieber and Jamie Pachino and to be produced by Kevin Spacey and his Trigger Street Production Co.

Before joining Lions Gate, Bernstein was production and development veepee at Ignite Entertainment, overseeing feature acquisition and development and working on productions.

While there, he was exec producer on “Click,” co-producer of “Employee of the Month” and worked on “Get Over It.”

Bernstein was previously director of development at Mostow/Lieberman Prods. and at the Draizin Co. He began in film at Jon Peters Entertainment as a story editor and production exec.

Bernstein began his career in music with Bill Dern Management, representing U.K. label Acid Jazz Records, and groups the Brand New Heavies and D-Influence. He later moved to RCA as college alternative marketing coordinator.
