Independent A-List Producers
While some independent producers have found regular homes with major studios, most still remain free agents, shopping their projects to the highest bidder.
Independent A-list producers include:
Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, The Jinks/Cohen Company
Jerry Bruckheimer, Jerry Bruckheimer Films
Michael Bay, Bay Films
Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, Kennedy/Marshall Company
Mike Medavoy, Phoenix Pictures
Peter Guber, Mandalay Entertainment
Richard Zanuck, The Zanuck Company
Scott Rudin, Scott Rudin Productions
Some of these individuals worked their way up from production assistant or the mail room, others joined the film business with their M.B.A. freshly in hand, and a lucky few were born into Hollywood aristocracy. Whatever their background, all have proven themselves by repeated success at the box office.
