Marvel’s Kevin Feige Set for Produced By: New York Conference

UPDATED: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Lucy Fisher, Joi McMillon, John Penotti, Becky Read, Adele Romanski, and Tim Wardle have been added as speakers to the Producers Guild of America’s fifth annual Produced By: New York conference.

The event will take place on Nov. 10 at the One Time Warner Center in New York. John Krasinski, Steve McQueen, and Bruce Cohen have previously been announced as speakers.

This year’s program will include a new session called “Late-Night Laughs,” which represents Produced By: New York’s first panel about the world of late-night.

It will also include a producing masterclass called “The Creative Collaborations,” with a producer from each film taking the stage with a key collaborator — director, writer, actor, cinematographer, production designer, editor, or composer — to discuss how their partnerships provided the defining elements of their films.

Cohen (“American Beauty”) and Mimi Valdés (“Hidden Figures”) will lead the discussions, which include: “The Favourite” director and producer Yorgos Lanthimos and writer Tony McNamara; “A Quiet Place” director, writer, and executive producer Krasinski and producer Andrew Form; “RBG” producers and directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West; “Widows” director, writer, and producer McQueen and producer Iain Canning; and “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” director and producer Morgan Neville and producer Caryn Capotosto.

New additions to the session include: “Black Panther” producer Feige, “Crazy Rich Asians” producer Penotti, “If Beale Street Could Talk” producer Romanski and editor McMillon, and “Three Identical Strangers” producer Read and director Wardle.

“Late-Night Laughs” features a discussion with executive producers and showrunners from established and upcoming shows about the unique challenges of producing on different platforms. Chris Licht (executive producer and showrunner of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”) will moderate the discussion, which includes: Jen Flanz (executive producer and showrunner of “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah”), Mike Shoemaker (producer of “Late Night With Seth Meyers”), and Prashanth Venkataramanujam (co-creator and executive producer of “Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj”).

Programming for Produced By: New York will be curated by PGA members, including Cohen, Valdes, Dana Kuznetzkoff, Licht, Debbie Myers, Kristine Pregot, and Matteo Stanzani.
