THE FAMILY STONE

MICHAEL LONDON (Producer) received an Academy-Award nomination and Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Awards for Fox Searchlight Pictures' "Sideways.” London began his work on "Sideways” in 1998 after reading the then-unpublished novel of the same name by Rex Pickett. In 1999 the book attracted the attention of writer-director Alexander Payne, who had just completed "Election.” But it was four years before Payne's schedule would allow him to begin shooting the project.

In the meantime, London produced two of 2003's most acclaimed films: "Thirteen,” released by Fox Searchlight, and "The House of Sand and Fog.” London found "Thirteen,” which Catherine Hardwicke co-wrote with Nikki Reed, and nurtured the uncompromising mother-daughter story of sex, drugs and adolescent angst, which became one of 2004's most honored independent films. The film won the Sundance Film Festival Director's Award, and earned many other accolades, including an Oscar nomination for Holly Hunter and Golden Globe nominations for Hunter and Evan Rachel Wood. London was nominated (with Catherine Hardwicke) for an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature.

"The House of Sand and Fog,” writer/director Vadim Perelman's adaptation of Andrew Dubus' novel of the same name, won the National Board of Review Award for Best Debut Director, and its many other honors include three Oscar nominations and a Golden Globe nomination. London earned a second Independent Spirit Award nomination (with Vadim Perelman) for Best First Feature.

London, who has an overall producing deal with Paramount Pictures, also produced "Forty Days and Forty Nights,” starring Josh Hartnett, and "The Guru.”

London was executive vice president of production at Twentieth Century Fox. He began his career as a reporter and pop music critic for the Los Angeles Times in the 1980s.
