Gardner

Co-President / Producer

As co-president (with Jeremy Kleiner) of Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B Entertain-
ment, Gardner has had an astonishing run at the Oscars, with best pictures “Moonlight” and “12 Years a Slave.” She’s one of Hollywood’s top indie producers, championing narrative and filmmaker-driven projects, often with strong sociopolitical elements. Gardner has also racked up some serious box office with commercial fare such as Marc Forster’s 2013 zombie blockbuster — and Pitt starrer — “World War Z” and 2010’s Julia Roberts drama “Eat Pray Love.” While her big-screeners continue with the upcoming “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Barry Jenkins’ take on James Baldwin’s book on the fallout of a false arrest — a TIFF special presentation — she also has Starz’s “Sweetbitter” and Netflix’s “The OA.”
