Dimension Films, which has been ramping up, has tapped veteran exec Brad Luff as its president of production.
Move comes with Dimension in the midst of shooting “Scream 4” with “Spy Kids 4” and reboots of “Hellraiser” and “Children of the Corn” in pre-production. Additionally, industrialist Len Blavatnik is making a three-year investment in The Weinstein Co.
TWC exec David Glasser told Daily Variety that the production president slot had not been filled for some time and that Luff’s hiring is part of a staff expansion beyond the current 119 with upcoming projects including “American Werewolf in London,” Scanners” and “Short Circuit 2.”
Luff’s ankling from his slot as senior VP of production at Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group. He’s previously worked at Morgan Creek, Original Film and the Mayhem Project.
Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s company finalized a major debt restructuring in July that swapped ownership of more than 200 library titles in exchange for wiping away at least $450 million in debt. Fourth quarter releases include “Blue Valentine,” “The King’s Speech” and John Wells’ downsizing drama “Company Men.”
