He is also the co-founder and co-majority owner (along with David Bonderman) of the future National Hockey League team in Seattle.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Bruckheimer was born in Detroit, Michigan, the son of German Jewish immigrants.[4] He graduated from Mumford High School in 1961[5] in Detroit, at age 17, before moving to Arizona for college. Bruckheimer was also an active member of the Stamp Collecting Club.[6] He graduated with a degree in psychology from the University of Arizona. He was a member of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity. A film buff at an early age with an interest in photography, Bruckheimer would take snapshots when he had the opportunity. After college Bruckheimer worked in advertising in Detroit (creative producer) and New York City. At the Detroit agency, he worked on a 1-minute ad spot for the new Pontiac GTO.[7]

Early in his career, Bruckheimer produced television commercials, including one for Pepsi.

1970s: from advertising to film productionEdit

Bruckheimer started producing films in the 1970s, after leaving his job in advertising, with director Dick Richards. They had worked together on the films The Culpepper Cattle Company, Farewell, My Lovely, and March or Die. Bruckheimer then worked with Paul Schrader on two films, American Gigolo and Cat People, which began to give him notice in Hollywood.

During the 1980s and 1990s, he was a co-producer with Don Simpson of a string of highly successful Hollywood films for Paramount Pictures. He originally met Don at a screening of 1973's The Harder They Come at Warner Brothers. The two worked together and created Bruckheimer's first big hit, 1983's Flashdance, which brought in US$95 million.[8] He had a number of other hits during that time period, including the Beverly Hills Cop films, Top Gun and Days of Thunder. Top Gun marked his first collaboration with English director Tony Scott, who directed six films for Bruckheimer.[9] The first Beverly Hills Cop movie, which was supposed to star Sylvester Stallone, launched Eddie Murphy's career and became Paramount's highest grossing winter release in the company's history in just five days.[10]

While working with Simpson, Bruckheimer became known as "Mr. Outside" because of his experience with film-making, while Simpson became known as "Mr. Inside" because of his film industry contacts. The Rock was the last film in which Bruckheimer collaborated with Simpson. After Simpson's death in 1996, Bruckheimer stipulated that The Rock be dedicated to the memory of Simpson.

1990s: big budget filmsEdit

In 1988, Bruckenheimer and Simpson striked a $500-million deal with Paramount to produce 5 movies of their entire choice.[11] However, his 1990 production Days of Thunder starring Tom Cruise did not perform well, a step backwards in the Bruckheimer-Simpson's success story. The duo made a come-back in 1994 with the low-budget film ($12 million) The Ref.[12]

Despite Simpson's untimely death, Bruckheimer has continued to produce a large number of action films often working with director Michael Bay for several hits including Armageddon. His other hit films produced include Remember the Titans, Black Hawk Down and the Pirates of the Caribbean series. He has also acquired the rights to produce a film based on the popular role playing game by Palladium Books, Rifts.

2000s: Franchises, TV, video gamesEdit

Since 1996 he has branched out into television, creating a number of police dramas of which CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has been the most successful.[citation needed] He has also produced the reality game show The Amazing Race. In May 2008 CBS announced it had picked up Bruckheimer's newest series, Eleventh Hour, for the 2008–2009 broadcast television season. The science fiction drama follows a government agent and a professor as they investigate strange scientific and medical activity.[13]

From 2004 (beginning of CSI: NY) to 2009 (end of Without a Trace), Bruckheimer had six hit television shows on the air: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Cold Case, Without a Trace and The Amazing Race. At one point, three of his TV series ranked among the top 10 in the ratings.[3]

In December 2007 Bruckheimer announced plans to partner with MTV to create a new game studio.[14] The same year Bruckheimer joined the ZeniMax Media board of directors and has since showed up at several launch parties for Bethesda Softworks titles including Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.[15] In 2009, Bruckheimer unveiled Jerry Bruckheimer Games headed by former Microsoft Studios Publishing Executive Producer Jim Veevaert as president of production and Jay Cohen, previously Ubisoft's vice president of U.S. publishing, as president of development.[16]

It was announced on September 10, 2009 that NBC had picked up an action procedural from Jerry Bruckheimer. The show, titled Chase,[17] "tells the stories of a team charged with making sure fugitive criminals don't evade justice," reports The Hollywood Reporter.[18] It was canceled in May 2011. Bruckheimer's most notable flop was Skin, which was cancelled after three episodes in 2003.

In 2011 it was rumored that Jerry Bruckheimer Games was working on three titles, but nothing came out of it ever since.[19] In March 2013 Jerry Bruckheimer Games was closed.[20] Although Jerry Bruckheimer Games is closed, Bruckheimer still remains a ZeniMax board member to this day, mostly due to being a close associate of ZeniMax President Ernest Del.[21]

2010s: Independent producer, sportsEdit

In 2014, after the disappointment of The Sorcerer's Apprentice[22] and The Lone Ranger,[23] Jerry Bruckheimer and the Disney Studios split up by not renewing their first-look deal that expired that year.[24] He signed a new first-look deal with the Paramount that same year, and mentioned a new Beverly Hills Cop and a Top Gun 2 as potential production ventures with his new partner.[25]

In June 2016, Jerry Bruckheimer Television became an Independent outfit, ending a 15-year run exclusive pact with Warner Bros Television.[26]

Bruckheimer was named as one of the investors of a proposed sports arena in Las Vegas,[27] and had been rumored to be the leading choice by the National Hockey League (NHL) to own an expansion hockey team that would play in the arena. Bruckheimer was also named as one of the investors of a proposed Seattle-based NHL expansion team whose application was submitted in early 2018.[28] The NHL Board of Governors voted to approve the Seattle NHL team on December 4, 2018, which will start play in the 2021–22 season.[29] Jerry Bruckheimer was part of an investment group that also included Tim Leiweike (Oak View Group) and David Bonderman (minority owner Boston Celtics).[30]

Impact on the film industryEdit

High-profit productionsEdit

The movie Top Gun was produced in collaboration with the Pentagon to rebrand the US Navy's image post-Vietnam war, and attract new Navy recruits. Top Gun was the first full-blown collaboration between Hollywood and the US Navy.[31][32] The model developed by Jerry Bruckheimer around the production of Top Gun launched a new trend of war movies in the nineties and onward.[32]

In July 2003, Bruckheimer was honored by Variety magazine as the first producer in Hollywood history to produce the top two highest-grossing films of a single weekend, the buddy-cop Bad Boys II and the Disney theme-park spin-off, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. According to Variety, the "Bruckheimer touch" is characterized by a "consistently edgy, high-octane visual dynamic and equally distinctive storytelling driven by the triumphalism so popular with Madison Avenue".[7]

The Pirates of the Caribbean film series, produced through Walt Disney Pictures, was enormously profitable[citation needed], and demonstrated Bruckheimer's ability to create lucrative projects. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, the first film in the franchise, was released on July 9, 2003. A popular box office hit, it was well received by critics and filmgoers alike. After the unexpected success of the first film, Walt Disney Pictures revealed that a trilogy was in the works. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was released on July 7, 2006. The sequel proved to be very successful, breaking records worldwide the day of its premiere. In the end it acquired a total of $1,066,179,725 at the worldwide box office, becoming the third and fastest film to reach this amount.[citation needed] The third film in the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, was released worldwide on May 25, 2007. Altogether, the film franchise has grossed over $2.79 billion worldwide. Two more films, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, were released, in 2011 and 2017, respectively.

Personal viewsEdit

When asked about his favorite films, Bruckheimer named The Godfather (1972), The French Connection (1971), Good Will Hunting (1997), and The 400 Blows (1959).[3] When asked on what the film industry's obligation to an audience was, he responded, "We are in the transportation business. We transport audiences from one place to another."[33] When asked why he makes films, he stated, "If I made films for the critics, or for someone else, I'd probably be living in some small Hollywood studio apartment."[34]

In a 1984 interview with the Los Angeles Times, he said "We (he and Don Simpson) put together all the elements. We decide what aesthetic is right for a picture. We are as much a part of the process as the director."[7]

In May 2006, he was honored with a doctor of fine arts degree (DFA) from the University of Arizona's College of Fine Arts.

Other commitmentsEdit

Philanthropic activitiesEdit

Bruckheimer's philanthropic activities have included publicly supporting the fight against multiple sclerosis via his work with The Nancy Davis Foundation for MS. He has additionally pledged to help various causes by establishing the Jerry Bruckheimer Foundation.[35] However, according to The Smoking Gun, the last time the Jerry Bruckheimer Foundation made a contribution was in 1995, when it gave $9,350 to Van Nuys prep school.[36]

Bruckheimer has aided in the repair and restoration of the historic clipper ship Cutty Sark. A collection of photos taken by Bruckheimer went on display in London in November 2007 to help raise money for the Cutty Sark Conservation Project. The exhibition featured more than thirty pictures taken on set during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.[37]

Political contributionsEdit

Bruckheimer has donated more than $50,000 to Republican campaigns and committees.[38] Bruckheimer donated funds to John McCain's 2008 presidential election campaign. He gave $5,000 to a joint fundraising committee on John McCain's behalf.[39] Bruckheimer donated $25,000 to the 2012 Mitt Romney Victory Fund.[40]
