EXCLUSIVE: In an imminent shakeup in the ranks of The Weinstein Company, Donna Gigliotti is moving from president of production to produce movies full time. This wasn’t a big surprise as she gave notice last month. Negotiations are underway with Dylan Sellers to replace her. Sellers will supervise both productions and acquisitions, the latter of which put The Weinstein Company squarely in the Oscar race with The Artist. Sellers most recently was top production executive for Unique Features, the Warner Bros-based production shingle of former New Line chiefs Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne. I expect this to be formalized tomorrow and will have more details as they emerge.
