HUSH

DOUGLAS WICK (producer) was born in New York and raised in Los Angeles. He returned to the East Coast to attend Yale, where he studied literature and film. He remained in New York for about four years after college working with Alan Pakula, rising through the ranks from coffee boy to personal assistant to story editor and eventually to associate producer on Paramount's Starting Over, which led to a producing deal with United Artists. Wick and then little­known playwright Kevin Wade came up with a pitch, a Cinderella story on Wall Street, which was passed on by every major studio except Fox. The project, Working Girl, went on to receive six Oscars nominations, including a Best Picture nomination for Wick, who received sole producer credit. Working Girl also won five Golden Globe Awards, including Best Comedy.

Wick set up Red Wagon Productions at Columbia Pictures as a story­intensive company. Their first project, Wolf, by Jim Harrison and Wesley Strick, starred Jack Nicholson, Michelle Pfeiffer and was directed by Mike Nichols. Red Wagon's next Columbia project was The Craft, which Wick produced and developed from an idea he had about four teenage girls in high school who dabble in witchcraft. The Craft was directed by Andrew Fleming.

Wick will follow his producing duties on Hush with the project Girl Interrupted, from the book by Susanna Kaysen, starring Winona Ryder, and A Simple Wedding.
