Spyglass looks to Wolpert for VP of prod

Exec talented, entrepreneurial, Glickman sez

Megan Wolpert has been tapped as vice president of production at Spyglass Entertainment.

Wolpert held the same title at Sony-based Konrad Pictures, where she was instrumental in setting up “Life Under Ground,” written by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, at Sony.

She was also instrumental in setting up an untitled screenplay by Nancy Pimental, with Cameron Diaz attached to star and Roger Kumble committed to helm, also at Sony.

“We are thrilled to be completing our creative staff with someone as talented and entrepreneurial as Megan,” said president of production Jonathan Glickman, to whom Wolpert will report. “She’s going to bring a lot of energy to Spyglass, and we look forward to her help in expanding our slate.”

Wolpert joins veep Derek Evans and story editor Jeremy Steckler in completing the Spyglass creative staff.

Day-to-day overseer

At Konrad Pictures, Wolpert oversaw the day-to-day business of the company. She worked on such pics as “Girl, Interrupted” and “Teaching Mrs. Tingle.”

Wolpert joined Konrad Pictures in 1997 as story editor; she was then promoted to director of development and veep.

Founded by Roger Birnbaum and Gary Barber, Spyglass recently released “Shanghai Noon,” starring Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson and Lucy Liu.

Birnbaum, Barber and Glickman are prepping “The Count of Monte Cristo,” slated to begin lensing in Ireland in July under the direction of Kevin Reynolds, with Jim Caviezel and Guy Pearce starring.
