Cathy Konrad

Cathy Konrad has produced 16 feature films. She is widely recognized in the industry for launching new filmmakers and writers, and for her choices in material, which are both artistically progressive and commercially viable.

Konrad and her partner, writer/director James Mangold have several other high profile projects in active development at their company TREE/LINE FILM, including a remake of the classic Glenn Ford western, 3:10 To Yuma set up at Sony Pictures, based on the Elmore Leonard short story, as well as Mute Witness, a remake of the British indie thriller, set up at Spyglass, targeting production for January in Prague.

Konrad's last production, the psychological thriller Identity, starred John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Ray Liotta, Clea DuVall and Alfred Molina as travelers stranded in desert storm. The film topped the box office its opening weekend, and went on to gross over 90 million worldwide. In 2001, Konrad produced both The Sweetest Thing starring Cameron Diaz and Kate & Leopold starring Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman (directed by Mangold, nominated for a Golden Globe). She also executive produced Lift, an urban drama starring Kerry Washington, which debuted at Sundance and premiered on Showtime.

In 1999 Konrad produced Girl, Interrupted, which won Angelina Jolie an Academy Award as best supporting actress; and also completed the third installment of the highly successful Scream trilogy, (all of which were produced by Konrad and directed Wes Craven). Scream and its sequels have grossed more than $350 million dollars worldwide, making it the most lucrative horror franchise of all time.

Other films Konrad has produced include Kids, the controversial and critically acclaimed debut film by Larry Clark and written by Harmony Korine, Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead directed by Gary Fleder and written by Scott Rosenberg, Alexander Payne's debut film Citzen Ruth, Beautiful Girls directed by Ted Demme and written by Rosenberg, Wide Awake written and directed by M. Night Shamalyan, Teaching Mrs. Tingle written and directed by Kevin Williamson, and Cop Land written and directed by Mangold, and starring Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel and Ray Liotta.

Prior to forming her own production company in 1996, Konrad served as President of Woods Entertainment. Preceding her tenure there, Konrad was Senior Vice President of Yorktown Productions, working with reknown filmmaker Norman Jewison. Before joining Yorktown, Konrad worked for producer Kathleen Kennedy at Amblin Entertainment. Konrad's career began in her hometown of Silver Springs, Maryland where she worked in various production capacities on films such as Suspect, Hamburger Hill and Zelly and Me.
