Heyman

Heyman received a pair of Oscar nominations for best picture in 2020 as the producer of Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” and Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story.” They were relatively anomalous entries in a filmography most notable for his big-screen adaptations of J.K. Rowling works (the “Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts” franchises) and the beloved Paddington Bear children’s books. Previously nominated for 2013’s “Gravity,” he is a second-generation best picture nominee, following in the footsteps of his mother Norma Heyman (1988’s “Dangerous Liaisons”). His other recent efforts include director Marc Mundren’s feature adaptation of the novel “The Secret Garden,” the BBC miniseries “The Capture,” and the Netflix thriller series “Clickbait.” Upcoming projects include a third “Fantastic Beasts” movie, directed by David Yates.
