Brooks books end at M’max

Exec has worked on 'Shakespeare,' 'Pulp Fiction'

HOLLYWOOD — Miramax exec VP David Brooks, a 12-year vet of the company who’s worked on campaigns for more than 250 of its feature films, is ankling to pursue other options.

Brooks, who now serves as co-head of the mini-major’s marketing team, timed the move to coincide with the expiration of his current contract in early September.

Brooks, who has held a number of marketing jobs at the company, has a track record that reads like a greatest hits list of Miramax titles, having worked on such pics as “Il Postino,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “The Piano,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Gangs of New York.”

Brooks has also overseen Miramax’s Academy Awards marketing campaigns for the last decade.

“David is an extremely talented executive, with great organizational, business and creative sense,” Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein said. “He’s been an integral part of so many of our successes over the years. We wish him nothing but the best in his future pursuits,” he added.

“It’s been an absolutely unique and amazing experience working with and learning from Bob and Harvey,” said Brooks of the brothers Weinstein. “I’m very proud of all that’s been accomplished over the last 12 years and feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be associated with so many great people and so many creative projects.”
