THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS

NEAL H. MORITZ (Producer) is the owner of Original Film, an established feature film, television, commercial and music video production company. Moritz has a degree in economics from UCLA and a graduate degree from the Peter Stark motion picture producing program at the University of Southern California.

Moritz's first major film was Juice, one of the most lucrative independent pictures ever, and the fifth most profitable movie of 1992. The Stoned Age was his next feature, a comedy about a night in the life of two high school boys set in 1979. He then embarked on two movies for HBO, Blind Justice, a western starring Armand Assante and Elisabeth Shue, and Framed, starring Jeff Goldblum and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Moritz went on to produce the $100-million Volcano, starring Tommy Lee Jones, as well as the biggest hit of Fall 1997, I Know What You Did Last Summer, written by Kevin Williamson (Scream). He continued the trend of teen movies with Urban Legend as well as Cruel Intentions, Original Film's first self-financed feature. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer brought back cast members Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze, Jr., and added poop sensation Brandy.

Moritz's production of The Rat Pack for HBO was nominated for 11 Emmys, including Best Picture. It brought together the talents of director Rob Cohen and actors Ray Liotta and Don Cheadle. Moving into comedy, he produced Blue Streak in the Fall of 1999, starring Martin Lawrence. The Skulls was another self-financed feature that was released by Universal Pictures, again directed by Cohen. Other productions from Moritz have included Urban Legends 2: The Final Cute and Saving Silverman, starring Jason Biggs, Jack Black, Steve Zahn and Amanda Peet.

Moritz is in post-production on The Glass House, starring Leelee Sobieski, Diane Land and Stellan Skarsgard; Slackers, starring Devon Sawa and Jason Schwartzman; Soul Survivors, starring Wes Bentley, Eliza Dusku and Melissa Sage Miller, and Not A Teen Movie, a spoof on the teen movie genre which Moritz himself helped to create.

Moritz successfully started his first season on network TV with the show Shasta McNasty and USA Network's Cabin by the Lake. Current television projects include Electra's Guys with Carmen Electra, Class Warfare for USA Cable, Shotgun Love Dolls for MTV and Greg the Bunny for Fox.
