Dylan Sellers Exits The Weinstein Co.
The move comes less than three years after joining the company as president of production and acquisitions
Dylan Sellers is exiting his post as president of production and acquisitions at The Weinstein Co., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He is leaving to produce films, a source says.
The move comes less than three years after Sellers joined TWC from Unique Pictures. His three-year deal is about to expire. Sellers was brought on to fill the shoes of Donna Gigliotti, who also left to pursue producing full time.
TWC is in the awards-season hunt again this year with Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game and Bill Murray starrer St. Vincent, but the company has had its share of misfires in recent past months, including the YA book adaptation The Giver.
A TWC source says Sellers' exit is mutual, and the company is now looking for a studio executive to take the reins of the production and acquisitions operations. Sellers reported to TWC COO David Glasser.
