NEW YORK, NY (July 19, 2011) – Dimension Films announced today that Matthew Stein, EVP of Production, is moving from his role after 12 years of service at the studio to transition into a non-exclusive producing relationship with Dimension Films.

Besides executive producing such films as Rob Zombie’s remake of HALLOWEEN, as well as SCREAM 4, and the upcoming APOLLO 18, Stein has been instrumental in the development and production of such varied films as SPY KIDS 4, PIRANHA 3D, YOUTH IN REVOLT, 1408, SCARY MOVIE 4 and many more.

“I am looking forward to getting involved in movie projects outside my role as a studio executive at Dimension Films. The past 12 years have been incredibly rewarding, and I cannot imagine having had a position in which I could have gained more industry knowledge and hands-on movie-making experiences,” said Stein.

“Stein has been a loyal and talented executive for over a decade. He has been my go-to guy on issues in production and development, and was involved heavily in all other aspects, such as marketing. I wish him luck in all his future endeavors – both in his continued relationship with Dimension, and on other future projects,” said Bob Weinstein, Co-Chairmen of The Weinstein Company.
