Josh Feldman Announced as Head of Development for Hasbro Studios
Hasbro is pleased to announce that, following the success of “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction”, they now have a head of development for the TV and Film division of their company: Josh Feldman. Prior to Hasbro, Josh was director of development at Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films banner, where he worked on the “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” movies. He also helped Hasbro adapt “Magic: The Gathering” for the big screen at Fox before he even made the switch. He started working at Hasbro sometime last week and is now reporting directly to the President of Hasbro Studios, Stephen Davis.
“With his tremendous experience in brand-focused film storytelling, Josh is ideally suited for this role as we look to expand our feature business,” says Stephen “His focus will be on both our franchise and new brands in live-action and animation, and Josh will work closely with the studio’s TV development, brand, design, digital and licensing teams to deliver full storytelling integration across our brand blueprint.”
