Promotion comes less than a year after hire
D.J. Gugenheim has been upped to exec VP of production and development at Inferno Entertainment, which he joined last July as VP of production.
“Since joining Inferno, Gugenheim has done an excellent job of expanding the company’s development slate as well as broadening and deepening its relationships with both creative partners and investors,” said Bill Johnson, co-chairman of Inferno. “We look forward to continuing to enjoy the benefits of D.J.’s excellent relationships and great taste in material.”
Gugenheim is currently working on Natalie Krinsky’s Black List script “Museum of Broken Relationships” and an adaptation of Harlen Coben’s thriller novel “Hold Tight,” as well as Steven C. Miller’s “Silent Night” remake, which just wrapped.
Inferno handled international sales at Cannes for Guillermo del Toro’s “Pinocchio” and Olivier Dahan’s “Grace of Monaco,” as well as the zombie pic “Maggie” and the Steve Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher. Company’s upcoming release include Andrew Dominik’s Brad Pitt-starrer “Killing Them Softly” and Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s novel “The Host.”
