Movie Producers Feeling More Pressure: ‘Winners, Losers Are Bigger Than Ever’

10 June 2017 1:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Box office hits and misses carry more importance than ever, veteran Hollywood exec-turned-producer Doug Belgrad asserted Saturday to his producing brothers and sisters.

“Quality matters more than ever … Winners and losers are bigger than ever before,” Belgrad said during the “Financing Your Film” panel at the Fox lot as part of the Producers Guild of America’s ninth annual Produced By conference.

Belgrad joined PGA President Gary Lucchesi, Carla Hacken (“Hell or High Water”), Kevin Turen (“The Birth of a Nation”), and Rena Ronson, head of UTA Independent Film Group, for a panel that painted a picture of a movie industry that’s facing increased pressure to succeed amid fast-changing circumstances as it scrambles to retain its customer base. Belgrad, who departed Sony last year after eight years as head of its motion picture group, is developing “Peter Rabbit” and “Bad Boys 3.”

The conference comes with Universal having seen Tom Cruise »
