Life and career[edit][]

Wick is the son of actress Mary Jane (Woods) and United States Information Agency director Charles Z. Wick.[1][2] Following his cum laude graduation from Yale University, where he was a member of Wolf's Head Society, Douglas Wick began work for filmmaker Alan J. Pakula as his "coffee boy". In 1979, Wick would get his first film credit when he served as associate producer on Pakula's film Starting Over. Wick's first solo producing job came on the 1988 film Working Girl. His next film, Wolf, would reunite Wick with Mike Nichols, who directed Working Girl, before he went on to produce the 1996 film The Craft. The year of 1999 saw Wick produce both the critical-hit Girl, Interrupted and the box-office hit Stuart Little. The following year brought with it Wick's biggest success to date, Gladiator.[3] This film would net Wick an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA award all for "Best Picture". Also in 2000 Wick produced the Sci Fi hit Hollow Man. In the next few years Wick would produce Spy Game, Peter Pan (the first live action version of the J.M. Barrie classic tale),[4]:514 a successful Stuart Little sequel Stuart Little 2,[5] and Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!.[4]:750 In 2005, Wick produced two more critical hits, Jarhead and Memoirs of a Geisha as well as two lesser successes Bewitched and another Stuart Little sequel Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild. Wick produced the moderate success of RV and a Hollow Man sequel Hollow Man 2 in 2006.

Wick and Red Wagon's most recent production was The Divergent Series, based on Veronica Roth's New York Times bestselling books. Divergent starred a cast of newcomers including Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort, as well as Oscar winner Kate Winslet. It was followed by the sequels Insurgent and Allegiant, which also stars Naomi Watts and Jeff Daniels. Previously, Fisher and Wick produced The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan.[6][failed verification]

Wick has been married to Lucy Fisher since 1986, and together they have three daughters.[1] Wick is also best friends with bluegrass musician Dave Rawlings and frequently visits him at his home in Nashville.[7][failed verification]
