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 produced last summer's $145 million-plus sleeper hit The Fast and the Furious, his third collaboration with director Rob Cohen following The Skulls and The Rat Pack.

Moritz's earlier credits helped establish him as one of the most profitable producers in Hollywood. Juice was his first major film, followed up by the hit I Know What You Did Last Summer, which featured breakthrough performances by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe and Freddie Prinze, Jr. Its sequel, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, followed, adding pop sensation Brandy to the cast. Moritz's next film, Urban Legend, spawned a successful sequel, Urban Legends: Final Cut. Cruel Intentions was Original Film's first self-financed feature.

Other films Moritz has produced include Volcano, Blue Streak with Martin Lawrence, Saving Silverman with Jack Black, Steve Zahn and Jason Biggs, and the Leelee Sobieski starrer, The Glass House. Recent credits include Not Another Teen Movie, a spoof of the genre of teen movies that Neal helped to create, and the college comedy Slackers starring Jason Schwartzman and Devon Sawa. He recently wrapped production on romantic comedy Sweet Home Alabama, starring Reese Witherspoon and Candice Bergen, which will be in theaters this fall.

Moritz has also successfully launched several TV series including this years children's show satire Greg The Bunny on Fox, Shasta McNasty on UPN, and television movies Hendrix for Showtime, Cabin By The Lake and Class Warfare, both for the USA Network.

Neal is currently producing the Denzel Washington thriller Out Of Time, directed by Carl Franklin. Filming later this year are Torque, a motorcycle action movie helmed by music video veteran Joseph Kahn, S.W.A.T. based on the 70's TV show starring Colin Farrell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michelle Rodriguez, and The Fast And The Furious 2, bringing back Paul Walker for more action, this time set in Miami and helmed by John Singleton.
