Bosch exits as HBO Films’ U.K. co-chief

Co-managing director Wolf to take over London unit

LONDON — Seven months after she was hired as joint chief of HBO Films London, Rosa Bosch is ankling to take up a producer deal with the company.

Co-managing director Penny Wolf will take over sole charge of the London unit, which was launched in March to handle foreign theatrical sales of the cabler’s movies.

Sources said Bosch, a veteran of the worldwide festival circuit, never settled into her new corporate role, in which she had responsibility for fests and talent relationships. Her return to indie production takes her back to an area where she’s more comfortable.

Bosch, a partner in Hispanic production outfit Tequila Gang, was previously involved in various capacities in the production and international distribution of “Buena Vista Social Club,” “Lost in La Mancha,” “The Devil’s Backbone,” “Amores Perros” and “Nine Queens.” (Tequila Gang was founded by Mexican helmers Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, screenwriter Laura Esquivel, producer Bertha Navarro and Bosch.)

Bosch previously had served as deputy director of the London Film Festival, was a member of the San Sebastian fest committee and was an acquisitions exec for sales outfit the Works.

At HBO Films London, Wolf will continue to lead the sales efforts; the festival tasks previously handled by Bosch will be farmed out to consultants in local territories.

HBO had no comment on Bosch’s exit. The company is expected to make an announcement on the move in the coming week.
