Meet the 2013 Care and Cure Honoree
Michael De Luca
A native of New York and former production chief for DreamWorks and New Line Cinema, De Luca founded Michael De Luca Productions in March of 2004 and has a development and production agreement with Columbia Pictures. Prior to forming Michael De Luca Productions, De Luca served as DreamWorks' Head of Production. During his previous tenure as President and COO of New Line Productions, he created the highly successful Friday, Blade, Austin Powers and Rush Hour franchises, and launched the directing careers of Jay Roach, Brett Ratner, Gary Ross, Alan and Albert Hughes, F. Gary Gray, the Farrelly brothers, and Paul Thomas Anderson. De Luca continues to focus on developing provocative specialized films with visionary filmmakers, as well as pop culture, mainstream genre films with franchise potential. His projects for Columbia have included David Fincher's Academy Award winning drama The Social Network, and the Oscar nominated Moneyball starring Brad Pitt. He is currently in post production for the studio on the Tom Hanks starrer Captain Phillips, a film about Captain Richard Phillips' ordeal at the hands of Somali pirates, to be directed by Paul Greengrass. As a devoted and generous supporter of the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles, we are thrilled to have him serve as our 2013 CARE AND CURE honoree.
