Holzer heading to Big Beach

TWC production VP to develop and oversee projects

Leah Holzer, who spent the past year as production VP at The Weinstein Co., has joined Big Beach Films.

Execs at the shingle that created summer counterprogrammer “Safety Not Guaranteed” and Oscar-winner “Little Miss Sunshine” don’t use titles (note “Beach” in the name), but Holzer will be in charge of development, from finding material to shepherding projects through production.

“Very happy to have her here,” Big Beach co-founder Peter Saraf wrote to Variety. “One of the smartest, nicest, most well respected people in the business with great taste and a passion for the kind of movies that we are making.”

At TWC, Holzer helped oversee post-production for “My Week With Marilyn.” Prior to that the NYU grad had stints at Unique Features — where she oversaw feature development of titles including “Shiver,” — and New Line, where she was responsible for developing and scouting literary properties.

Saraf and fellow Big Beach founder Marc Turtletaub recently announced they’re re-teaming with “Safety” filmmakers Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly on “The Ambassador,” another quirky sci-fier which the duo will write together for Trevorrow to direct.
