Lee

Over the last two decades, Lee has churned out everything from horror properties (“The Ring,” “The Grudge”) to family fare (“The Lego Movie,” “How to Train Your Dragon”), and he continued his prolific ways in 2020 with Lena Waithe’s new Amazon series “Them” and the CBS All Access miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand,” which premiered in December. Those come on the heels of his two King adaptations in 2019, “It: Chapter Two” and “Doctor Sleep,” a sequel to “The Shining” — the former a worldwide hit, the latter a box office disappointment. His company Vertigo Entertainment’s upcoming slate includes the thrillers “Don’t Worry, Darling” (New Line), “Cobweb” (Lionsgate) and “The Mother” (Netflix) as well as another King adaptation, “Salem’s Lot” (Warner Bros.). In September, Lionsgate announced a first-look deal with Vertigo.
