New Line boosts Stern

Jay Stern, who supervised the making of “Money Talks” and “Love Jones,” has been promoted to senior vice president for production at New Line Cinema.

Stern, formerly a production vice president for Hollywood Pictures, joined New Line in April 1995, with the same title. He had launched his career in New York, where he served as a production assistant on “The Fan” and “Going in Style” and as a location manager for “Tootsie,” among other stints.

“One of the great things about working at New Line is that I’m surrounded by smart people who genuinely love making movies,” Stern said. “They’re open to making movies that are different from the standard fare. They’re willing to take risks. That’s a dream come true for an executive in our business.”

Stern is currently supervising Brett Ratner’s “Rush Hour,” a Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker thriller that began prinicipal photography Monday in a Pasadena mansion, and “The Corrupter,” starring Chow Yun Fat and Mark Wahlberg, and directed by James Foley. Stern is developing “Killing of a Chinese Bookie,” also a Ratner film; “Vicious,” a dark comedy to be directed by Vadim Jean; and “School for Scoundrels,” produced by Interscope and Diane Nabatoff.
