2 at Tapestry make partner

Gibgot, Panay weaved into new positions

NEW YORK — Tapestry Films execs Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay have been named partners at the Los Angeles-based company.

They join founding partners Peter Abrams, Robert Levy and J.P. Guerin.

Gibgot and Panay will continue to acquire, develop and produce material for the shingle, which recently struck a first-look pact with Miramax/Dimension Films.

Gibgot and Panay were each instrumental in developing a Tapestry movie from inception. Gibgot conceived the idea for the company’s Miramax release “She’s All That”; Panay came up with the idea for “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder,” released by Artisan.

Gibgot produced Tapestry’s romantic comedy “The Wedding Planner,” starring Jennifer Lopez and released by Columbia. Company was also a producer on the Myriad Pictures-financed “Tangled,” which was acquired by Miramax. Panay co-produced the romantic comedy “Serendipity,” starring John Cusack and released by Miramax, and he was responsible for setting up “Pay It Forward” at Warner Bros.

Abrams and Levy said: “Jennifer’s and Andrew’s contributions and commitment to Tapestry have been invaluable over the years, and we are only too pleased to partner with them in our company. They are creative, forward-thinking executives and terrific people as well.”

In development at Tapestry are the thrillers “Breaking the Girl,” which will be produced in conjunction with Myriad Pictures, and an untitled Stephen Peters project set up at Universal. Shingle is also developing “Hunters and Gatherers” for U; an untitled Lee Fleming project at Miramax; and the family films “Johnny on the Spot” and “A Horse’s Tale,” both set up at Miramax.
