Par loves VP Libowitz

Exec oversaw 'Hulk' pre-production at Valhalla

Sig Libowitz has been appointed VP of acquisitions and co-productions at Paramount Classics, reporting to co-prexys Ruth Vitale and David Dinerstein.

Libowitz will handle the day-to-day responsibilities of acquisitions and co-productions.

Most recently, he worked with Rebecca Yeldham at the L.A.-based division of FilmFour, where he oversaw the company’s domestic development projects, including Walter Salles’ “Motorcycle Diaries.”

Before that, he was VP of production for Valhalla Motion Pictures, where he oversaw pre-production on Ang Lee’s “The Hulk” for Universal.

Before relocating to the West Coast, Libowitz spent five years with Good Machine in New York, where he was the production exec on the Oscar-nominated “In the Bedroom.” He also worked on “Lovely & Amazing,” “The Ice Storm,” “The Myth of Fingerprints” and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”

“We are thrilled that we will have Sig’s expertise to continue to build upon the success of Paramount Classics’ acquisition and co-production efforts,” Vitale and Dinerstein said in a statement. “His experience and unique development skills will be a tremendous asset.”

Paramount Classics most recently released South Korean hit “The Way Home,” “Mostly Martha” and “Bloody Sunday.” Latter, from director Paul Greengrass, received special recognition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Upcoming releases include “Till Human Voices Wake Us,” starring Helena Bonham Carter and Guy Pearce; Russia’s Oscar entry “House of Fools,” from Andrei Konchalovsky; Claude Lelouch’s award-winning “And Now Ladies & Gentlemen,” starring Jeremy Irons; the Polish Brothers’ “Northfork”; Patrice Leconte’s “The Man on the Train”; Paul McGuigan’s “The Reckoning”; and noir thriller “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead,” which reteams “Croupier” director Mike Hodges and star Clive Owen.
