Warner Bros. senior vp production Dan Lin is segueing from the executive world to the production world, signing an exclusive long-term deal with the studio through his newly formed shingle, Lin Pictures.
Lin plans to develop and produce films of all genres, specializing in event-style tentpole pictures through his company, which will be based on the studio lot. Upcoming projects and new staffing appointments are forthcoming. The production company will be up and running in January.
Lin said he presented a business plan to Warner Bros. president and COO Alan Horn and Jeff Robinov -- who is set to become president of the Warner Bros. Pictures Group next month -- last summer proposing the venture in response to the new ways movies are produced and delivered.
"There are so many changes in the way that filmmakers bring their films to us that I wanted to do something a little more entrepreneurial for the studio," he said. »

Newly minted Oscar winner William Monahan is reteaming with The Departed players Leonardo DiCaprio and Vertigo Entertainment for another Hong Kong remake, a thriller titled Confessions of Pain for Warner Bros. Pictures, which acquired the rights to the film.
Pain follows two close friends, one a police detective and the other a private detective, who team to investigate the murder of the cop's father-in-law. As the investigation proceeds, they uncover evidence that shows that nothing is as it appears.
The original, released last year, was created by Alan Mak, Andrew Lau and Felix Chong, the team behind Infernal Affairs, the Hong Kong film on which Oscar winner Departed was based. MediaAsia produced and financed both movies.
Monahan, who won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay for writing Departed, will adapt Pain and executive produce.
Dan Lin will oversee for Warners. »
