Par shingle picks a prexy

Lorenzo pulls in Vahradian

Veteran exec Mark Vahradian has closed a deal to serve as production prexy at Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s Paramount Pictures-based shingle. Move had been speculated about for weeks, but Vahradian’s deal didn’t close until late last week.

Exec segues to the post following three years as prexy of production for Jerry Weintraub Prods. on the Warner Bros. lot. During his tenure there, Vahradian worked on “Ocean’s Twelve” and “Nancy Drew.”

Before joining Weintraub, Vahradian spent eight years as a production exec at the Walt Disney Co. During his Mouse House tenure, he was involved in such films as “Remember the Titans,” “Snow Dogs,” “A Civil Action,” “Enemy of the State,” “Miracle” and “Flight Plan.”

“I’ll miss Warner Bros., but Paramount was the first place I ever worked in the business. So this is a bit of a homecoming for me,” Vahradian said. Vahradian joins di Bonaventura at a busy time for the shingle, which is prepping a slate for Par that includes Antoine Fuqua’s “Shooter,” Michael Bay’s “Transformers: The Movie” and Matthew Vaughn’s “Stardust.”
