An eclectic film producer and theatrical entrepreneur, Milchan started out producing and financing features in the Israeli film industry. As a producer and executive producer, he has been responsible for numerous features, including adventurous works by some of the world's most celebrated directors: Sergio Leone ("Once Upon a Time in America" 1984); Martin Scorsese ("The King of Comedy" 1983); Terry Gilliam ("Brazil" 1985); Ridley Scott ("Legend" 1985); and Sidney Lumet ("Q&A" 1990). Milchan has collaborated with Oliver Stone on "JFK" (1991), "Heaven and Earth" (1993), and "Natural Born Killers" (1994) and Jon Amiel on "Sommersby" (1993) and "Copycat" (1995).

Moving from Israel to Paris, Milchan produced commercials for French TV and various plays for the Paris stage including a production of "Amadeus" starring Roman Polanski. He also produced the play "Ipi Tombi" and the New York production of "It's Nice to Be Civilized" before segueing into a successful career in Hollywood film production. Milchan's hits include "The War of the Roses" (1989), "Pretty Woman" (1990), "Under Siege" (1992), "Free Willy" (1993), "The Client" (1994) and "Heat" (1995). In recent years, he has branched out into feature financing through his New Regency Productions, which has overseen such films as "Carpool," "Northstar," "Bogus" and "A Time to Kill" (all 1996). In early 1996, he made a bid to purchase Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
