Former Weinstein Co. exec Dan Guando is joining Bloom as president of production. He will oversee and grow Bloom's film slate and will report to Alex Walton. The new hire will allow Bloom to grow into content creation and ownership on top of working as an international licensing company.
Guando, who will relocate from New York City to Los Angeles, worked at The Weinstein Co. for 12 years, most recently serving as the U.S. head of acquisitions, production and development. He worked on a vast collection of films, including The Imitation Game, The Artist, Fruitvale Station, Philomena, The Grandmaster, Snowpiercer, Blue Valentine, Begin Again, Sing Street and The Founder.
Bloom, founded by Walton and producer-financier Ken Kao in 2014, has a diversified 2017 slate: Scott Cooper's Hostiles starring Christian Bale and Rosamund Pike; Martin Zandvliet's The Outsider starring Jared Leto; Federico D'Alessandro's Tau starring Maika Monroe and Ed Skrein; Paul Weitz's Bel Canto starring Julianne Moore and Ken Watanabe; Danny Strong's Rebel in the Rye starring Nicholas Hoult; George Clooney's Suburbicon starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore; and Kate and Laura Mulleavy's Woodshock starring Kirsten Dunst.
"We are delighted that Dan is joining Bloom at this important next phase for our business," said Walton in a statement. "Dan is universally well respected and comes with great knowledge and experience in our space. I am very confident that Dan can help Bloom become a reliable content creator to our international licensing partners."
