Johnson

President / Producer

Johnson began as a bit actor in the mid ’60s, and by the ’80s he’d won an Oscar for producing a best picture (“Rain Man”), and things show no signs of abating. His longtime collaboration with Vince Gilligan continued with Netflix’s “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” starring Aaron Paul, and the “Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul,” which drops its fifth season next year. He has another movie toplined by Paul opening this fall — “The Parts You Lose” from Christopher Cantwell, creator of period drama series “Halt and Catch Fire,” which Johnson produced — and one for Netflix due next year, Claudia Llosa’s Spanish-language “Fever Dream.” And his pipeline will keep flowing via deals at AMC (television) and Anonymous Content (TV and features).
