TEACHING MRS. TINGLE
Having produced twelve films in the last five
years, thirty six year old CATHY KONRAD is one of the most
prolific producers in Hollywood today.
Some of her projects that have enjoyed both critical and box office
success are: the Scream franchise, and Copland,
as well as producing the directing debuts of Larry Clark (the
highly acclaimed Kids), Alexander Payne (the satirical
Citizen Ruth), Ted Demme (the relationship comedy Beautiful
Girls), Gary Fleder (the crime drama Things to Do In Denver
When You're Dead), M. Knight Shyamalan (the family drama Wide
Awake), and most recently Kevin Williamson.
Konrad continues to actively develop and produce an eclectic slate
of films for her production banner, Konrad Pictures, which has
a three-year, first look deal with Columbia. Currently in post-production
for Columbia is the highly anticipated Girl Interrupted,
starring Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Whoopi Goldberg, Clea Duvall,
Brittany Murphy, and Vanessa Redgrave.
In addition to Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Konrad is also producing
Miramax/Dimension's Scream 3, which reunites Konrad with
filmmaker Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson, actors Courtney Cox and
David Arquette and begins production this summer for a wide release
in December 1999.
Other Konrad projects currently in the development include: Kate
& Leopold, a romantic comedy to be directed by James Mangold;
Cherokee Rose, about the infamous Cherokee Trail of Tears,
written by Lucky Gold; Double Wish, starring and based
on an idea by Rosie O'Donnell; Prom War, a teen comedy
by Brian Hecker; and So Shoot Me, which she will produce
with Diane Keaton and Bill Robinson from a script by Alexandra
Valenti and Ceridwen Morris.
Prior to forming her own production company, Konrad served as
President of Woods Entertainment. Before her stint at Woods Entertainment,
Konrad was Senior Vice President of director Norman Jewison's
Yorktown Productions. While at Yorktown, she developed the romantic
comedy "Only You," starring Marisa Tomei and Robert
Downey Jr., and "Bogus," starring Whoopi Goldberg.
Konrad's first job in the industry was in her hometown of Silver
Springs, Maryland, where she worked in various production posts
on films such as Suspect, Hamburger Hill, and Zelly
and me. She then moved on the Amblin Entertainment, working
for producer, Kathleen Kennedy.
