Next Gen 2013: Hollywood's New Class
Heineman helps oversee Joel Silver's Silver Pictures film slate and has been integral in expanding the company into more elevated genre fare.
He is a producer on Liam Neeson's latest thriller, Non-Stop, which opens in 2014, and soon will go into production on Home Invasion, a thriller starring up-and-comers Bella Thorne and Chandler Riggs. Tentpoles continue to be part of the strategy, too.
The New York native, who interned in Miramax Films' music department during his time at Marist College, is executive producing Universal's remake of Weird Science, which will reteam him with the writer of Project X, the hit comedy based on a Heineman idea.
FAVORITE MOVIE: The Shining. Every time I watch it, I see new things.
POWER LUNCH SPOT: Anything on Abbot Kinney.
MOST MEANINGFUL THING IN MY OFFICE: My coffee. I need several cups a day.
IN MY BIOPIC, THE ACTOR PLAYING ME WOULD BE: Mark Ruffalo. He comes across as quiet and reserved, but there's a lot going on under the surface.
HUMILIATING PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE: I've been yelled at by Bob Weinstein in a crowded theater filled with Miramax employees. But after the first few times, you get over it.
