"Welcome to the project Mr. Ian Bryce. Ian will produce this movie with Tom Desanto, Mr. Lorenzo, and myself. He will have the hardest and most thankless job of all, functioning in the line producer position. Basically, that means that he makes sure we all finish on time and on schedule. At gunpoint if need be.
Ian is one of the biggest and most successful people in Hollywood in his job. I first crossed paths with him ten years ago when Oliver Stone and I tried to do a good update of PLANET OF THE APES. Since that time heâ€™s done a few little films that you have heard of, like SPIDER-MAN and SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Most recently he worked with out director on the terrific summer film, THE ISLAND".
"Ian, having worked with Michael before, also will be having significant impact on the creative decisions of the film. Yes, he knows about the voice actor movement. Yes, he knows about the board and like the writers, Tom and the DW execs, he will hopefully come and interact with you. Yes, this is big news for the project insofar as you only bring someone like this on when you are seriously close to making the film."
