Stewart returns to WB as shingle’s prexy

Moving to Bel-Air

Allyn Stewart has been named president of production for Warner Bros. Pictures-based production company Bel-Air Entertainment. Post represents something of a homecoming for Stewart, who once served as a senior production exec at the studio.

Stewart, who will report directly to Bel-Air CEO Steve Reuther, most recently was a producer at Stanley Jaffe’s Jaffilms. The company produced the Columbia Pictures releases “Madeline” and the recent Kim Basinger starrer “I Dreamed of Africa” during her tenure.

“It is very important to the success of the company to have as talented an executive and a producer as Allyn working at Bel-Air,” said Reuther. “I feel very fortunate that she is joining the company at this critical point in time.”

While a Warner Bros. exec, she was responsible for the production of films such as the Oscar-winning “Driving Miss Daisy,” “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Memphis Belle.”

“I am so excited to join my longtime friend Steve Reuther at Bel-Air Entertainment and to be returning to Warner Bros.,” said Stewart. “Steve has fantastic taste and I am looking forward to working on the terrific projects he has in the pipeline.”

Stewart’s career in entertainment began at 20th Century Fox’s London and Paris offices. She then served as a production veep at TriStar Pictures before moving over to Warner Bros. for six years. In 1990, she formed the TriStar-based Stewart Pictures, where she produced films such as “Bliss” starring Terence Stamp.

Upcoming Bel-Air titles include “The Replacements” and “Sweet November,” both starring Keanu Reeves, the ensemble comedy “Chain of Fools” toplined by Salma Hayek and “Pay It Forward” starring Kevin Spacey.
