DreamWorks taps Stevenson

Former Kopelson VP first new exec since July

Injecting new blood into its executive staff, DreamWorks has hired Damian Stevenson, former executive veep of production at Kopelson Entertainment.

The first executive to come aboard since July, when Bob Cooper exited as DreamWorks production head — a job now held by Jeffrey Katzenberg — Stevenson will report to feature division chiefs Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald.

Previously, Stevenson worked closely with Arnold Kopelson on the production of such films as “Devil’s Advocate” and “A Perfect Murder,” which represented the tail end of a Kopelson-Warner Bros. pact. Kopelson now has an exclusive deal with Fox, for whom Stevenson helped set up a slate of projects, including “Riptide,” scripted by John Logan (“Minority Report),” and a project on the 1990 art heist at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
