De Line taps senior veep for shingle

Walton also hired as creative exec

Former Paramount Pictures president Donald De Line has named Andrew Haas as senior VP at his Warner Bros.-based production company.

Haas began working for De Line as an assistant during an eight-year stint at Touchstone, where De Line became president in 1993, and was tapped as a development exec when Par-based De Line Pictures was created in 1999. He was an exec producer on “Without a Paddle” and became a VP at Paramount early last year after De Line became studio president.

Haas worked mostly on comedies during his tenure at Par, including “Dad Can’t Lose,” “It’s Not You, It’s Me,” “Smother” and “Stalker: A Love Story,” along with a remake of “The Crazies.”

“I’m very happy to be reunited with my mentor,” Haas told Daily Variety.

De Line signed a three-year first-look deal at Warner last month after spending 14 months as Paramount president. He and former studio chief Sherry Lansing assembled Par’s summer slate, which includes “The Longest Yard,” “War of the Worlds,” “The Honeymooners” and “Bad News Bears.”

De Line has also hired Ed Walton, who’s been working for Jerry Bruckheimer Prods., as a creative exec.
