NEW YORK — Miramax has upped former VP of development Jill Messick to senior VP of production.

Based in Los Angeles, Messick will continue to report to co-prexy of production Meryl Poster. Promotion will magnify Messick’s oversight responsibilities on Miramax productions, including the upcoming “Cinderella Man,” starring Ben Affleck; “Dinner for Two at the El Cortez,” with Dustin Hoffman; and “Frida Kahlo,” with Salma Hayek.

Currently, Messick is co-supervising production on the Freddie Prinze Jr. starrer “Boys and Girls,” to be released by Dimension Films in August. She’s also in charge of multipicture writing deals with R. Lee Fleming Jr. (“She’s All That”) and the scripting team of Andrew Lowery and Andrew Miller (“Boys and Girls”).

“Jill has done a remarkable job in the three years she’s been here,” Poster said. “She has worked incredibly hard and enjoyed great success with her projects.”

Messick will also continue to work closely with the company’s genre division Dimension, whose upcoming pics “Getting Over Allison” and “Harvey” she’s overseeing.

Messick’s track record includes a role in bringing “She’s All That” to the company. Pic grossed $60 million domestically.

Prior to joining Miramax in 1997, Messick held positions at Woods Entertainment, the Gersh Agency and Somers/Teitelbaum/David.
