Principal / Partner

The veteran Oscar-nominated producer (for “American Hustle”) is a member of that small, exclusive club where each has at least 10 films that have all grossed well over $100 million worldwide. Roven has worked on every DC Comics movie at Warner Bros. since 2005’s “Batman Begins,” his productions have made billions, and include the critically lauded “The Dark Knight” trilogy ($2.4 billion), “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ($873 million), “Man of Steel” ($670 million) and the recent smash “Suicide Squad” ($750 million).

In a career dating back to 1983’s “Heart Like a Wheel” and 1990’s “Cadillac Man” starring Robin Williams, he has always worked effectively in multiple genres simultaneously, and with a wide range of filmmakers – from bookish perfectionists with mega- budgets like Christopher Nolan (the “Batman” trilogy) to tattooed fanboys like Zack Snyder (“Man of Steel,” “Batman vs. Superman”), iconoclastic visionaries like Terry Gilliam (“12 Monkeys,” “The Brothers Grimm”); family-friendly entertainers like Raja Gosnell (the “Scooby-Doo” reboots) and edgy indie auteurs like David O. Russell ((“Three Kings,” “American Hustle”). The busy president and co-founder of Atlas Entertainment has a slew of high profile projects in the pipeline including “Justice League,” scheduled for November 2017.
