Broad Green Taps Dylan Wiley to Handle Releasing

One-year-old Broad Green Pictures has appointed veteran marketing-distribution executive Dylan Wiley as president of specialty releasing.

Broad Green, founded by brothers Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, has focused on adult-oriented dramas with an upcoming slate including “99 Homes,” starring Andrew Garfield; “A Walk in the Woods,” starring Robert Redford; Sarah Silverman’s “I Smile Back”; and three Terrence Malick films — “Knight of Cups,” “Voyage of Time” and an untitled project starring Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender.

Wiley, a former exec at Entertainment One and New Line, has been working at Broad Green since November and will manage all aspects of the release of eight to 12 specialty titles annually — including platform and multi-window patterns. The specialty film slate will be primarily focused on acquisitions and co-productions, although Broad Green noted that it’s also in development on its own projects and will begin production on those in the coming months.

“Five minutes into my initial meetings with Gabriel and Daniel, I knew I wanted to help them achieve their ambitious and innovative vision,” said Wiley. “We have in common a desire to bring quality entertainment to a wide audience through careful planning and deep collaboration.”

Wiley oversaw the launch of Entertainment One’s U.S. releasing arm and managed the releases of over 90 New Line titles including the “Austin Powers,” “Rush Hour” and “Final Destination” franchises, along with “Elf,” “Wedding Crashers” and “Hairspray.” He was also global brand manager for the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

Broad Green announced on May 1 that it is financing “Buena Vista Social Club — Adios,” an upcoming sequel to Wim Wenders’ 2000 documentary about Cuban music.
