Kushner-Locke puts Moos atop prod’n

Move signals reorg

In a major company restructuring, the Kushner-Locke Co. has named Adam Moos executive veep of production following the move of former head of production, Frank Hildebrand, into a non-exclusive production relationship with the company.

Moos joins K-L from Film Finances Inc., a company that supplies film guarantees. At Film Finances, he worked with studios and indie companies overseeing the completion of more than 150 films.

Among the films under Moos’ purview were: “Leaving Las Vegas,” “The Usual Suspects,” “Halloween: H20,” “Strange Days” and “Beverly Hills Ninja.”

Previously, Moose produced the sci-fi/fantasy Imax film “The Journey Inside” and either co-produced or associate produced such projects as “Prayer of the Rollerboys,” “Guilty as Charged” and the Imax films “The Discoverers” and “Homeland.”

While head of production at K-L, Hildebrand was responsible for the production of such films as “Picking Up the Pieces” (directed by Alfonso Arau, starring Woody Allen), “The Last Producer” (directed and starring Burt Reynolds) and “Susan’s Plan” (directed by John Landis, starring Dan Aykroyd and Natassja Kinski).

In his new producer capacity at K-L, Hildebrand has set up “They Nest,” ready to begin lensing in Vancouver later in the year, and “Vlad the Impaler,” currently in pre-production and to be shot in Romania.
