Film fest workers, have hope.

Filling a slot that has been open since Adam Goodman took over the presidency of the Paramount motion picture group, the ex-DreamWorks production exec has promoted exec v-p Marc Evans to president of production. Goodman praised Evans for "juggling highly complex productions with complete grace and ease," and for having a great work ethic and strong relationships with filmmakers.

Evans, who joined the studio in 2003 as a v-p, works closely with J.J. Abrams (Star Trek and Super 8 and David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), supervised Mission: Impossible III and is handling the next installment (which starts in August). His other assignments include the upcoming Transformers 3, Rango, Morning Glory and The Last Airbender. Evans came to Paramount from Laura Ziskin Productions, and started out as director of the Chicago International Film Festival.
