ANTHONY BREGMAN, Producer of Foxcatcher, on raising equity and investing in indie films
4 days ago
In our interview Anthony Bregman breaks down what exactly a good producer does, since everyone and their mother seems to call themselves a producer these days. Bregman is one of the rare film producers who is as dexterous at developing smart scripts as he is at securing investors and delivering hits. He is also one of the last few producers left in New York who transformed what it meant to make independent films with (and without) studios. Before founding Likely Story, Bregman was a partner at This is That Productions for 4 years, and spent 10 years as head of production at Good Machine. He's produced over 30 features, including FOXCATCHER, SENSE & SENSIBILITY, EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN, PLEASE GIVE, and ETERNAL SUNSHINE of the SPOTLESS MIND.
In 2006, Bregman founded his own production company, Likely Story. He has produced multiple films with writer/directors like Charlie Kaufman and Nicole Holofcener. Their latest collaboration ENOUGH SAID, starred the late James Gandolfini and gave Julia Louis Dreyfuss, her first meaty role. Bregman is currently working on five films, including one with another indie darling, former Focus Features head, James Schamus, who will make his directorial debut with INDIGNATION, an adaptation of a Philip Roth novel. Bregman is also on the board of IFP and lives in New York City with his family.
