Erica Huggins

Erica Huggins (executive vice president, production) was with Radar Pictures and its precursor, Interscope Communications, for over a decade. While at Radar her credits included, Merchant-Ivory's Le Divorce starring Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts and How to Deal starring Mandy Moore. She also helped develop several of their projects including the second feature in the highly successful Jumanji franchise; Soldier Field, to be executive-produced by Joe Carnahan (Narc) and co-star Ray Liotta; a remake of the Oscar-nominated Everybody's Famous; Jimmy Fallon's (Saturday Night Live) big-screen debut Tanguy; and Widow's Broom and Zathura, both based on children's books by award-winning Jumanji and Polar Express author Chris Van Allsburg.

Huggins first came to Interscope's attention more than a decade ago when she was working as a film editor on one of the company's productions. Her credits included John Waters' classics Hairspray; Crybaby; Serial Mom; and Academy-Award-winning director Michael Cimino's The Sicilian and Desperate Hours. Interscope was in search of executives with a non-traditional background to bring a fresh perspective to the development and production process and offered Huggins a position as in-house producer.

At Interscope, Huggins produced What Dreams May Come, starring Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr., which earned an Oscar for its groundbreaking visual effects; Boys, starring Winona Ryder; and the critically acclaimed Gridlock'd, starring Tupac Shakur and Tim Roth.

In 2004 Imagine Entertainment hired Huggins as Senior Vice President of Motion Pictures where she currently is in post-production on Flightplan, Disney's airborne thriller starring Jodi Foster and directed by Robert Schwentke.

Huggins graduated Hampshire College with a dual degree in Anthropology and Documentary Film. She spent a year in Japan and China, researching her thesis and teaching at Kobe College.
