"I've had a wild year," says Lichter, a doyenne of the indie scene and board member of the Telluride Film Festival. "Wild" is relative: While it includes recent bicycle trips to Vietnam and Cambodia as well as journeys to Ghana and the Galapagos, she's referring to the work she's done for her busy clients -- including the Scandinavian producers who own The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo rights; director Marc Forster, whose zombie movie, World War Z, stars Brad Pitt; and Linda Woolverton, the only woman to have penned a $1 billion-plus grosser, Alice in Wonderland, who is now writing a sequel for Disney and a stage adaptation. Lichter has one of the toughest negotiating styles in town but also one of the most engaging personalities -- plus a bit of help from an industry she says is "turning around. Movies are getting made; pretty much everyone I have is working."
