Sylbert, Hawn hire Bernzweig

Disney-based producers Goldie Hawn and Anthea Sylbert have hired former Columbia Pictures director of development Jay Bernzweig as veepee of creative affairs for the Hawn/Sylbert Movie Co., sources said Wednesday.

During the Frank Price regime at Colpix, Bernzweig was one of the top story executives at the studio, ankling Columbia shortly after Mark Canton took the reins of the studio.

Price said: “The key thing is that (Bernzweig) has extremely good judgment in regard to material … He also showed great strength in regard to the editorial part of his duties, making good, insightful creative suggestions in terms of rewrites of scripts and fixing problems that appeared in material.”

Bernzweig developed Tony Kushner’s “Angels in America” with partner Jerry Felix. The project is set up in development at Avenue Pictures.

Sylbert said in a statement that the addition of Bernzweig will allow the company to expand its slate beyond “films that are developed for Goldie as an actress.” Hawn/Sylbert has an overall first-look deal with Hollywood Pictures.
