Misher mixes Baker into development

Exec to secure, develop material for shingle to produce

HOLLYWOOD — Kevin Misher’s budding U-based shingle, Misher Films, has hired former Baltimore/Spring Creek Pictures exec Patrick Baker.

Baker will work with Misher and newly appointed production exec Savannah Neely to secure and develop a wide range of material for the shingle to produce.

“Patrick has that rare combination of development and hands-on production experience,” Misher said. “His strong relationships with emerging filmmakers and keen eye for material will have an immediate impact on the company’s slate of projects.”

Baker joins Misher’s company after a 15-month stint as head of filmed entertainment at Europe Online, a Luxembourg-based broadband Internet service provider. Baker previously was director of development for Barry Levinson and Paula Weinstein’s Baltimore/Spring Creek, overseeing a range of projects including Wolfgang Petersen’s “The Perfect Storm” and Jaimie Vanderbilt’s “Independence, Mississippi.”

Misher Films, which launched last spring, is in post-production on U’s “Mummy” spinoff “The Scorpion King,” a co-production with Steve Sommers, Sean Daniel and Jim Jacks, set for release April 19. Shingle is developing several other high-profile projects, including “The Interpreter,” a thriller penned by Charles Randolph, with Working Title, and “Go to Hell, Mike Piazza,” with Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films, at U.
