Dimension Films has named Dan Levine senior VP, focusing on production and development.
Levine recently left his position as exec VP of production at Jersey Films, the Universal-based production entity headed by Danny DeVito, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher, which was officially dissolved June 30.
While his deal is not yet signed, Levine is expected to start work with Dimension next week. Based in Los Angeles, he will report to co-prexys Brad Weston and Andrew Rona.
Levine joined Jersey Films’ specialty arm, Jersey Shore, in 1999. He moved to the main film division a year later and was upped from senior VP to exec VP last summer. Levine recently served as co-producer on Todd Graff’s “Camp,” opening this month through IFC Films.
Before Jersey, Levine was production VP at New Regency, working on pics including “Fight Club” and “L.A. Confidential.” Previously, he was a creative exec at Doug Wick’s Red Wagon Prods.
