Working Title: Liza Chasin

Ask most production toppers their favorite pics they’ve worked on and they’ll rattle off a few, but not Chasin, president of U.S. production for Working Title Films. She says there are just too many options.

She does mention “Dead Man Walking” as an example of a movie that she says was “one of those life-altering experiences, where you knew you were part of something special from the start.”

Chasin started with WT 16 years ago and now heads the L.A. office, overseeing half of the films on the London-based unit’s slate.

“I’m most turned on by working with writers and directors,” she says. “We’re not afraid of development here, we’re very hard on ourselves, and there’s a sense that quality is important.”

Age: 41

Home: Los Angeles

Fave Working Title movie: “Too many to pick from.”

Downtime: “Hanging with my family,” husband Matthew and two daughters, Gaby and Georgia.

Least favorite thing about the biz: “Dishonesty.”
