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
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.
