Katzenberg, Jeffrey Biography




biography of Katzenberg, Jeffrey

21 December 1950, New York City, New York, USA


-   'Marilyn Katzenberg' (qv) (? - present); 2 children


-   Back in 1978, he was working for Paramount Pictures and was given the daunting task of bringing the Star Trek franchise back after a decade long "sleep". Eventually, the movie was complete, and is now "Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)".

-   Ranked #12 on Premiere's 2006 "Power 50" list along with DreamWorks co-founder 'David Geffen' (qv). They had ranked #12 in 2005 as well.

-   Ordered several scenes of "The Black Cauldron" to be cut due to their violent and scary nature.

-   After his resignation from Disney in 1994, he partnered up with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen to create their own studio: Dreamworks.

-   Father of 'David Katzenberg' (qv).

-   2007 - Ranked #22 on EW's The 50 Smartest People in Hollywood.

-   In 2006, he and his wife Marilyn donated $1.25 million to Boston University to renovate facilities.


-   Of this much I'm certain: If you write a good script with a great premise, you'll have a big hit. If you write a bad script with a great premise you'll still make money. But if you write a great script with a bad premise, success is not likely.

-   [on how he got a reluctant Leonard Nimoy to reprise his role as Mr. Spock for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture"] "All I remember is being in a resturant in New York with Leonard, and begging on my hands and knees. It worked."

-   If you asked 100 people to list 100 words to describe me, not one of them would have 'patient' written down.


-   (1998) Partner in DreamWorks SKG
