Elie Samaha is a nightclub owner, real estate entrepreneur, and film producer in Los Angeles, with production credits beginning with The Immortals in 1995. Samaha has produced over 83 works, primarily films along with some video games. He has won one award in this capacity: a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Picture, which he shared with John Travolta and Jonathan D. Krane, for the 2000 film Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000.\nBetween 1998 and 2004, Samaha produced films under the Franchise Pictures studio title, which included films such as Battlefield Earth.\nSamaha specialized in rescuing stars' pet projects. Franchise sought out stars whose projects were stalled at the major studios, bringing them aboard at reduced salaries. Samaha's approach made waves in Hollywood, earning him a reputation of being able to produce star vehicles more cheaply than the larger studios. His unorthodox deals raised eyebrows and the entertainment industry magazine Variety commented that they were \"often so complex and variable as to leave outsiders scratching their heads\".
