Career

Following his Cum Laude graduation of Yale University, where he was a member of Wolf's Head Society, Douglas Wick began work for filmmaker Alan Pakula as his "coffee boy". In 1979, Wick would get his first film credit when he served as associate producer on Pakula's film Starting Over. Wick's first solo producing job came on the 1988 film Working Girl. His next film, Wolf, would reunite Wick with Mike Nichols, who directed Working Girl, before he went on to produce the 1996 film The Craft and the 1998 critically panned Hush. The year of 1999 saw Wick produce both the critical-hit Girl, Interrupted and the box-office hit Stuart Little. The following year brought with it Wick's biggest success to date, Gladiator. This film would net Wick an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA award all for "Best Picture". Also in 2000 Wick produced the Sci Fi hit Hollow Man. In the next few years Wick would produce Spy Game, Peter Pan (the first live action version of the J.M. Barrie classic tale), a successful Stuart Little sequel Stuart Little 2, and Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!. In 2005 Douglas Wick would produce two more critical hits Jarhead and Memoirs of a Geisha as well as two lesser successes Bewitched and another Stuart Little sequel Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild. Wick produced the moderate success of RV and a Hollow Man sequel Hollow Man 2 in 2006. Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing Warrior.

Douglas Wick currently has seven films in production, including a Tobey Maguire project, Tokyo Suckerpunch, and a Leonardo DiCaprio project, The Chancellor Manuscript.
