Scott Shooman has been promoted to VP of acquisitions and productions for Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group (SPWAG). He will report to Steven Bersch, president of SPWAG, and Lara Thompson, SVP of acquisitions for the division.
In his new role, Shooman will continue to acquire films and oversee productions. He has helped acquire distribution rights for such films as We Own The Night and The Spirit, and supervised the production of such films as The Dark Country and Screamers 2.
“SPWAG's mandate is to deliver the strongest possible and most entertaining content for the Sony distribution entities,” Bersch said. “Scott's savvy production and business skills have been key elements in our business strategy and will become even more critical as we ramp up third-party and Stage 6 Films projects.”
