Currently are looking to do a broad range of films, such as:

* Supernatural or psychological thrillers and horror.
* Character-based sci-fi.

Marty Katz Productions

July 4, 2008

Marty Katz Productions has a first-look deal with Miramax and Dimension Films. The first movie produced under this deal is REINDEER GAMES, directed by John Frankenheimer, and starring Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron. They are currently in production on IMPOSTOR, directed by Gary Fleder, and starring Gary Sinise and Madeline Stowe.

The company’s most recent films include James Cameron’s TITANIC for Paramount Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox; MR. WRONG starring Ellen DeGeneres and Bill Pullman for Touchstone Pictures; and MAN OF THE HOUSE starring Chevy Chase and Jonathan Taylor Thomas for Walt Disney Pictures.

The company is currently seeking the following types of projects:

* sci-fi of the mind, along the lines of Twilight Zone as opposed to Star Wars.
* horror, but not Scream–it’s already been done. Something smart and new that stretches this genre.
* thrillers, either action thrillers (Reindeer Games) or psychological thrillers (Se7en) but they must have a hip edge to them.
* low budget urban comedies that would be right for the likes of the Wayans Brothers.
* projects with a touch of class (Life is Beautiful, Shakespeare in Love)
* musical (in the vein of Grease) with at least 5 male leads (18-25)
* screenplay adaptation of classic literature–either right on the nose, or a modernization.
