Execs shoot up the ladder at Walden

Anschutz promotes Levine, Turner

Anschutz Film Group has shuffled its exec ranks, promoting a pair of development execs under its Walden Media banner as well as its head of physical production.

Jackie Levine has been upped to senior VP of production and Evan Turner to VP of development and production. Both will continue to report to the head of the department, exec VP of production Alex Schwartz. 

Since joining the company in 2004, Levine has overseen production on “Amazing Grace,” “The Great Buck Howard,” “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium” and “The Water Horse.”  Turner, who was most recently director of development at Walden, was the production exec on “Hoot” and “Journey 3-D” and is overseeing production on “The Dark Is Rising” and “Nim’s Island.” 

Douglas Jones, who became head of physical production last year, has been promoted to exec VP of physical production. He oversaw “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” “Hoot” and “How to Eat Fried Worms” and is about to go into production on “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.”  

Jones oversees a team that includes VPs of physical production Mylan Stepanovich and Kimberly Rach and VP of post-production Jonas Thaler. Stepanovich and Rach joined Anschutz Film Group last year; Thaler was a post-production supervisor on “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
