Los Angeles (February 21, 2018) – As Global Road Entertainment (GRE) continues its focus on building a robust film slate following its rebrand last year, the Company has appointed highly regarded industry veteran David Rubin as President of Physical Production. Reporting to Lynn Harris, President of Worldwide Production, Rubin will oversee all physical production elements of the Company’s greenlit film projects through completion.
“David brings a wealth of experience having encountered productions of all scope and scale and we welcome his expertise as we gear up our production slate and beyond,” said Harris. “He has an understanding of production resources, the evolving global production landscape and commitment to storytelling that aligns with our vision for Global Road.”
Rubin added, “I am proud to join the incredibly well-respected team at Global Road. It will be immensely rewarding to use my experience in this industry to lead their efforts in creating a slate of films that resonates with moviegoers around the world.”
With more than 20 years of experience, Rubin joins GRE from CBS Films where he served as Executive Vice President of Physical Production since 2008 helping to launch the division and oversaw movie productions including “Last Vegas,” “The Duff,” “Seven Psychopaths,” “Patriots Day” and “American Assasin.” Prior to CBS Films, he was Senior Vice President of Production at Lakeshore Entertainment and oversaw and line produced many projects including “Crank” and “The Dead Girl”. Rubin joined Lakeshore following a period of time as an independent producer for eight years during which time he worked with numerous filmmakers and studios. A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Rubin began his producing career working for legendary producer Marvin Worth (“Lenny,” “Malcolm X”).
