Platt

Producer

Platt began in musical theater before getting into the movie business, and in some ways he’s never left. His current production slate includes big-screen adaptations of musicals “Dear Evan Hansen,” “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Wicked,” the latter of which he produced on Broadway, as well as Disney’s upcoming live-action “The Little Mermaid,” with new songs by Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda. He’s shown an affinity for serious feature fare as well, such as Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming historical drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and Steven Spielberg’s 2015 “Bridge of Spies,” which earned him one of his two best picture Oscar nominations (the other was “La La Land”). Also on tap are Disney’s “Legally Blonde 3,” starring Reese Witherspoon, and the live-action prequel “Cruella.”
