Maguire promotes Shafer

Exec upped to creative post at shingle

Dan Shafer has been upped to creative exec at Tobey Maguire’s Sony-based Maguire Entertainment shingle.

Shafer will work with Mark Ross, who heads the banner’s development department, to usher in new projects.

Shafer spent four years as a media and entertainment industry investment analyst for Dreyfus. Prior to his present two-year tenure at Maguire, he worked in independent film in New York and for CAA’s motion picture lit department.

Maguire Entertainment’s development slate includes “Everything Changes,” the Peter Hedges-penned adaptation of Jonathan Tropper’s book, and “Tokyo Suckerpunch,” Ed Solomon’s adaptation of Isaac Adamson’s novel. Both projects are set up at Sony. “Hot Plastic,” the film version of Peter Craig’s novel, is at Focus Features.
