Netflix names Dan Lin next head of film

Netflix has named Dan Lin as the next head of Netflix Film, Deadline reports. He will replace Scott Stuber, who currently holds the position.

Lin will assume the role on April 1, leaving the production company he founded, Rideback Productions.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he produced Death Note and the 2019 Oscar-nominated drama The Two Popes for Netflix. He also serves as an executive producer on Netflix’s live-action remake of “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”

Lin began his career as in an executive in film at Warner Bros, starting as a junior executive and eventually becoming the senior vice president of production.

According to The New York Times, Lin will likely be working under stronger budget constraints than Stuber. Netflix is planning to reduce the number of films it produces, focusing on quality over quantity. Lin will report to Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s chief content officer.

“While I’ve been approached many times during my past 15 years at Rideback, I could truly never imagine leaving until Bela reached out with this incredible opportunity,” Lin said in a statement per The New York Times.
