Over Thanksgiving weekend 2013, Moritz, 55, and his family were at the Blackberry Farm resort in Tennessee when he was plunged into the crisis that followed the death of his Furious 7 star Paul Walker. "I’ve made over 50 movies, and if I took all those challenges of all those movies together, this was a bigger challenge than all of those combined," he says. "Not only a financial and a personal and emotional challenge for everybody; the real challenge was that we didn’t tarnish Paul’s legacy." The proof of Moritz’s success came when Universal’s Furious 7 opened April 3 — at press time, it had grossed $1 billion worldwide. Now Moritz (whose Sony-based company has made movies like 21 Jump Street) is moving forward with other projects, including Goosebumps, based on the R.L. Stine kids’ horror book series, which opens in October; and Passengers, a sci-fi love story starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
