World renown filmmaker MACE NEUFELD
(Producer) brought to life one of the most popular series of motion
pictures in Paramount Pictures' history. Based on author Tom Clancy's
best-selling books The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games and
Clear and Present Danger, Neufeld and his production teams have
created some of the most successful and enduring big screen adaptations
ever. He also served as the producer on the classic OMEN series.
To date, his films have grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.
His keen eye for talent helped launch the careers of actors Kevin
Costner and Alec Baldwin as well as some of Hollywood's leading
directors such as Richard Donner, Roger Donaldson, John McTiernan
and Phillip Noyce. Earlier in his career, Neufeld's management
company guided some of the day's most popular musicians, comedians,
actors and writers.
Along with Harvey Bernhard, Neufeld produced his first feature
film, THE OMEN. Directed by Richard Donner, the supernatural thriller
starred Gregory Peck and Lee Remick and became an international
blockbuster in 1976. The duo went on to produce two hit sequels
- DAMIEN: THE OMEN II and THE FINAL CONFLICT.
For Neufeld, the runaway success of the OMEN series was the beginning
of a successful career as an independent producer. In the years
to follow, the words "A Mace Neufeld Production" appeared
on such off-beat films as Robert Aldrich's THE FRISCO KID, starring
Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford; THE FUNHOUSE which was Tobe Hooper's
first Hollywood feature; THE AVIATOR, starring Christopher Reeve;
and TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000, starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis.
Neufeld also nurtured a remake of the classic thriller, THE BIG
CLOCK that became the 1987 sleeper hit NO WAY OUT, starring Kevin
Costner, Sean Young, Gene Hackman and Will Patton. The film earned
critical acclaim and was the first hit for Costner and its director,
In 1984 Neufeld acquired the rights to Tom Clancy's novel The
Hunt for Red October when Clancy was still working as an insurance
agent. It took Neufeld five years to convince the studio to make
the picture and entrust it to an almost unknown director named
John McTiernan. When THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, starring Sean Connery
and Alec Baldwin, opened in 1989 it became an international blockbuster
and launched a series of films based on Clancy's best-selling
In 1989 Neufeld joined forces with former New World Entertainment
chief, Robert G. Rehme, to form Neufeld/Rehme Productions. The
company formed an exclusive motion picture production deal with
Paramount Pictures that lasted until September 1997. Currently,
Neufeld has an exclusive production contract with the studio.
Pictures produced under the Neufeld/Rehme banner include FLIGHT
OF THE INTRUDER directed by John Milius and starring Brad Johnson;
NECESSARY ROUGHNESS directed by Stan Dragotti and starring Scott
Bakula; John Landis' BEVERLY HILLS COP III with Eddie Murphy;
and the box office hits PATRIOT GAMES and CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER
both directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Harrison Ford. In
1992 Neufeld and Rehme were voted ShoWest Producers of the Year
by NATO and Showmen of the Year by the Publicist Guild.
Last year Neufeld collaborated with director Noyce on Paramount's
THE SAINT, starring Val Kilmer and Elizabeth Shue. Most recently,
he produced this summer's LOST IN SPACE, starring Gary Oldman,
William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Mimi Rogers and Heather Graham. He
also served as executiv
