By the time the action sequel Fast Five roared through theaters this past summer, Neal H. Moritz‘s films had grossed more than $5 billion worldwide.
The producer, 52, who specializes in high-octane crowd-pleasers, isn’t throttling back.
Moritz has five more big-budget studio pictures set for release during the next 18 months, beginning with Sony’s 21 Jump Street — a comedy remake of the 1980s TV show that opens March 16, four days after its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival — and followed Aug. 3 by Sony’s sci-fi remake Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell. Those could easily put another billion or two on his pile. His company, which has 17 employees, also has produced the TV series Prison Break, The Big C and the upcoming NBC comedy Save Me.
