Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Producer and executive Lloyd Levin began his entertainment career as a reader for Lawrence Gordon Productions and has remained a protege of Gordon ever since, following his mentor first to 20th Century Fox and subsequently to the Gordon Company, Largo Entertainment and the new Lawrence Gordon Productions, where he supervised all creative affairs and day-to-day operations. Perhaps his greatest coup was discovering Roderick Thorpe's "Nothing Lasts Forever", the novel on which the "Die Hard" series would be based, and he served as executive in charge of production on "Die Hard" (1988) and executive producer for "Die Hard 2" (1990). Levin received his first producing credit on "The Rocketeer" (1991) and picked up his second for "Event Horizon" before sharing producing duties (with Joanne Stellar and John Lyons) on "Boogie Nights" (both 1997).

Notes

"It's rare in this business to share such a long-standing professional relationship as fruitful and rewarding as mine has been with Larry [Gordon]. I'm looking forward to continuing my association with him and with the team at Universal [with whom Lawrence Gordon Productions had a first-look deal]. This opportunity is a real privilege." --Lloyd Levin, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, August 19, 1994

"This represents the beginning of Lawrence Gordon Productions. I think I'm really lucky to have Lloyd. He's a proven asset to me and my company. He found the original novel on which 'Die Hard' is based and beat me up to buy it. There would have been no 'Die Hard' series without him. He was instrumental in bringing 'Timecop' to Largo also. He's great with material." --Lawrence Gordon, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, August 19, 1994
