Hollywood Movie Producer
Fred Baton, executive vice president of feature production at 20th Century Fox, is best known for the innovative “Moulin Rouge,” starring Nicole Kidman, that came out in 2001, earning an Academy Award nomination for best movie of the year. His film credits include “I Robot,” with Will Smith, and “Live Free or Die Hard” with Bruce Willis, as well as “Kingdom of Heaven” and “The Day After Tomorrow.” He has said: “When I was in college, students did not arrive on campus with a plan centered on how to succeed on Wall Street or law school. We were the last of the ‘hippies’ who wanted to figure out who we were. Luckily, my game plan involved doing something I have really liked.”
