THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS

Having spent many years working in the States, DAVID HEYMAN returned to the UK IN 1997 to set up Heyday Films in order to build on his unique relationships in the US and Europe to produce international films and television programs.

Educated in England and the US, Heyman began his career as a production runner on Milos Forman's "Ragtime” and David Lean's "A Passage to India”. Heyman went to Los Angeles in 1986 to become a Creative Executive at Warner Bros., working on such films as "Gorillas in the Mist” and "Goodfellas”.

He moved on to become a Vice President at United Artists in the late 1980s, and subsequently embarked on a career as an independent producer, making several films including Ernest Dickenson's "Juice” starring Tupac Shakur and Omar Epps, and the low budget classic "The Daytrippers,” which was directed by Greg Mottola and stars Liev Schreiber, Parker Posey, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott.

Since his return to the UK, Heyman has produced all five of the "Harry Potter” films; the fifth, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” was released last year to record-breaking box office returns worldwide, and the sixth opens at the end of 2008. Heyman also produced "Ravenous” directed by Antonia Bird and has executive produced "Taking Lives” starring Angelina Jolie and Ethan Hawke, as well as the television series, "Threshold," "I Am Legend,” starring Will Smith and directed by Francis Lawrence. Heyman's forthcoming films are "Is There Anybody There?” starring Michael Caine, and directed by John Crowley and "Yes Man,” starring Jim Carrey and directed by Peyton Reed. He is continuing to develop "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime,” an adaptation of Mark Haddon's best selling novel, as well as several other projects.

Heyman won ShoWest's Producer of the Year Award in 2003, becoming the first British producer to have ever been bestowed with this accolade. And in 2005 "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” won the Orange Film of the Year at the BAFTAs.
