Platt

While his dance card is often packed with musicals, Platt’s productions aren’t all singing all the time. He earned his two best picture nominations for Steven Spielberg’s 2015 drama “Bridge of Spies” and 2016 Damien Chazelle musical film “La La Land,” and he produced Aaron Sorkin’s recent Netflix historical drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7” along with Disney’s upcoming live-action comedy “Cruella,” starring Emma Stone. But Platt soars with big-screen adaptations of Broadway hits, including “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Wicked” (which he produced on Broadway), a remake of “Little Shop of Horrors” and a musical drama series for Showtime to be written, directed and executive produced by John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”).
