He has also established an ongoing collaboration with respected filmmaker Neil LaBute. The pair joined forces for Propaganda Films and produced Your Friends and Neighbors, a biting romantic satire starring Ben Stiller, Aaron Eckhardt and Jason Patric. They collaborated again on the critically acclaimed, offbeat comedy Nurse Betty, with Renee Zellweger, Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock, which was nominated for the prestigious Palme d'Or at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival. Steuer again reunited with LaBute on The Shape of Things, a quirky romantic story starring Paul Rudd and Rachel Weisz.
Steuer has also turned his talents to the advertising world, executive producing the second series of memorable BMW Internet shorts features. The new trilogy, entitled Hire: The Hostage, once again starred Clive Owen in spots directed by John Woo, Joe Carnahan and Tony Scott. Additionally, he has produced over 40 national commercial campaigns with such notable production companies as RSA, Propaganda and Anonymous Content, among others.
