CBS Films ups Maria Faillace

Exec to oversee production for homegrown titles

CBS Films has promoted Maria Faillace to exec VP of production.

Faillace, who was previously senior VP of production, will oversee production for the division’s homegrown titles.

Move comes two days after CBS promoted Wolfgang Hammer and Terry Press to co-presidents of the CBS Films division after spending more than half a year without a prexy.

“Maria is insightful, hard-working and incredibly passionate about the business of making movies,” Press said. “She has strong relationships throughout the industry and a healthy respect for filmmakers.”

Faillace has shepherded director Takashi Shimizu’s horror thriller “7500,” set for release on Aug. 31, and the recently wrapped multigenerational comedy “Get a Job,” from director Dylan Kidd. Prior to joining CBS Films in 2008, Faillace spent eight years at Fox 2000, where she rose to VP of production and worked on “In Her Shoes,” “Fever Pitch” and “All About Steve.”

Recent CBS Films releases include “The Woman in Black” and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.” Basic aim of CBS Films — filling the gap left by the majors for moderately priced titles with wide appeal — isn’t expected to change. The company plans to release about six pics a year, with about half produced internally and half acquired.
