After more than three decades working in film and television, producer Gale Anne Hurd says the basic tenet of her success has always been about preparing for every possible outcome on a project.
“Then you’re not stuck having to solve things when there’s truly no time to get it wrong,” says Hurd, who will receive the 2015 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures at the Jan. 24 Producers Guild of America Awards ceremony.
“Going back to (1984’s) ‘The Terminator,’ I would have dreams about possible production problems, so I would have a list of plan B, plan C, plan D. Because everything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
Hurd started in the business as Roger Corman’s executive assistant at New World Pictures, eventually working her way up to head of marketing.“The Terminator,” which she also co-wrote, was the turning point, launching Hurd’s career as a producer. »

The Dive is a movie version of the life of couple Francisco “Pipin” Ferreras and Audrey Mestre. They submerged themselves for daredevil free-dives to see who could last the longest underwater on one puff of sweet, sweet oxygen. Appropriately enough the producer is James Cameron, who’s no stranger to deep sea antics. The Abyss famously depicted experiments in breathing below the surface, not to mention his fictional and actual exploration of the wreck of the Titanic.
Cameron co-produces with Rae Sanchini via Lightstorm Entertainment, alongside Barry Josephson. The script is by Dana Stevens. Lawrence certainly likes to mix it up a bit as the project likely follows her Magic Mop creator biopic Joy, co-starring Robert De Niro.
