Dylan Sellers will return to The Weinstein Company after a three year absence, the company announced Wednesday.
Sellers will assume his previous role of President of U.S. production, acquisitions and development, Co-Founder Harvey Weinstein and TWC President David Glasser said. The hire is effective immediately.
Sellers will add television to his purview, and Negeen Yazdi will continue as President of International Production and Acquisitions from the London office.
The executive previously held the title from 2011-2014, where he shepherded films like ensemble Oscar bait “August: Osage County,” Bill Murray’s “St. Vincent” and Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Southpaw.”
“It’s always a great feeling to welcome our TWC alum back home. At such an exciting time in film with so much innovation and creativity, Dylan’s exceptional sense of film and television fits seamlessly with the quality TWC is known for,” Weinstein said in a statement.
