Working Title: Eric Fellner

The other half of the Working Title power duo, Fellner joined Bevan in 1991, having previously produced the British pop culture classic “Sid and Nancy.” The symbiotic relationship they’ve formed since then masks any obvious differences between the two.

“We have similar tastes and similar skills, so we tend to run projects separately, but make all the major decisions together,” the producer explains. “On any given day we’ll talk many, many times, so we both know absolutely where each project is — creatively and businesswise — even if the other person is running that one thing. I never like to refer to (films) as mine or his. We take credit jointly, we share the spoils and take the pain of any losses jointly.”

However, Fellner does admit that in contrast to Bevan, he tends to gravitate toward testosterone-driven material. “I think my taste is sometimes more out there with projects like ‘Smokin’ Aces,'” he says, “which is a lot of blood and bullets and mayhem.”

Age: 47

Fave WT Movie: “I’ve always had a soft spot for my first film, ‘Sid and Nancy’.”

Downtime: “I just like to see friends, and I’ve got hundreds of children! Well, four boys …”

Least favorite part of the biz: “It doesn’t matter how many films you’ve made, it’s still incredibly stressful. That is difficult to accept after all this time.”
