Rogue pair get creative

Getto, Heineman tapped

Rogue Pictures has tapped Paul Getto and Alex Heineman as creative execs.

The duo will be based in the Universal genre unit’s Gotham offices, reporting directly to production head Andrew Rona, who recently joined Rogue after five years as co-prexy of Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s Dimension label.

Focus Features co-head David Linde is president of Rogue, and Focus Intl. handles foreign rights on all Rogue pics.

Getto has worked at Focus for two years for Linde and James Schamus. He previously was at ICM in New York.

Heineman worked with Rona at Dimension for three years.

Formerly owned by Disney, Dimension now is a unit of Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s new venture the Weinstein Co.

Upcoming Rogue releases include an untitled supernatural thriller starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, helmer Eduardo Sanchez’s “Altered” and “Dave Chappelle’s Block Party” by Michel Gondry.
