Vin Diesel revs up development

Ortiz heads to One Race to develop pics

Vin Diesel has hired former Universal exec David Ortiz at his One Race production shingle with the aim of developing films for a global audience.

Ortiz worked with Diesel at Universal on the “Fast and Furious” franchise. He also worked on “Wanted” and “Role Models” at the studio.

After starting in the WMA mailroom, Ortiz was Donna Langley’s assistant at Universal, went to Warner Bros. to become a creative executive and returned to U in 2005 as Langley’s first hire when she was promoted to president of production.

“David brings a fresh perspective to our slate,” Diesel said. “We are looking to him to bring us projects that resonate with multicultural audiences domestically and abroad.”
