Molen up a DreamWorks

Man of 'Black,' 'Casper' #2 in features

Steven R. Molen, an associate producer on last year’s hit “Men in Black,” has been promoted to second-in-command of physical feature production at DreamWorks.

Molen, son of “Schindler’s List” and “Jurassic Park” producer Gerald R. Molen, has had a long association with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, among other production houses. Prior to “Men in Black,” the younger Molen was production supervisor on “Casper” and a transportation captain on “My Life,” “Rain Man,” “Calendar Girl” and “Bram Stoker’s Dracula.”

He also worked on Spielberg’s “Hook,” as a transportation coordinator under his father, who was unit production manager and producer on the film.

Walter Parkes, who heads DreamWorks’ motion picture division alongside Laurie MacDonald, said he and MacDonald “were very lucky to work closely with Steve on ‘Men in Black,’ on which he demonstrated his expertise with the unique challenges of big special effects movies.”

“We’re thrilled to have someone with his talents joining our production team at DreamWorks,” Parkes said.

Molen’s father also began his career as a transportation coordinator, on “Americathon” and “Absence of Malice.” He was exec producer on “The Flintstones,” “The Little Rascals,” “Casper” and “Twister.”
