Warner Bros. Hires THE CONJURING Producer Walter Hamada As New President Of DC-Based Film Production

Following the departure of Jon Berg and Geoff Johns as heads of Warner Bros.' DC films department, the studio has announced that producer Walter Hamada will take over as new president of production...

We recently found out that some big changes were going to be implemented at Warner Bros. in the aftermath of Justice League's disappointing box office run, and it's just been announced that a new president of DC-based film production has been hired to replace Jon Berg.

According to Variety, The Conjuring and IT executive producer Walter Hamada will now be in charge of spearheading WB's upcoming slate of DC projects. Hamada, who is one half of New Line's “Team Genre” along with Dave Neustadter, will work closely with Geoff Johns, who will remain on as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment.

Here's a statement from Toby Emmerich, Warners’ president and chief content officer:


“Walter is creative, resourceful, and committed to excellence, and will bring those qualities to his oversight of our superhero films. He’s a terrific production executive and served as an executive producer on two of the summer’s most popular films, New Line’s It and Annabelle: Creation. I’m confident Walter and Geoff, working with our filmmaking partners, will deliver films that will resonate with both broad global audiences as well as DC fanboys and fangirls. Walter’s a great addition to the Warner Bros. Pictures team, and I look forward to working with him in his new post.”
