Dylan Sellers is exiting as the Weinstein Company’s president of production and acquisitions at The Weinstein Company,
Sellers will be leaving the company after a two-year run and return to producing films, the company said Tuesday.
It been a slow year at the box office for TWC so far. Neither “Begin Again” nor “The Giver” connected and “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” which it distributed but didn’t finance, bombed. That leaves TWC to bank on awards hopefuls like the Bill Murray comedy “St. Vincent,” the Keira-Knightley-Benedict Cumberbatch drama “Imitation Game” and Tim Burton‘s “Big Eyes.”
Prior to joining TWC, Sellers produced such films including “Passenger 57,” “Footloose” and”Agent Cody Banks.” series. He was also a senior production executive at Warner Brothers’ Unique Feature.
Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
