Martin Bregman

After the success of "Dog Day Afternoon" Bregman oversaw two political dramas, "The Next Man" (1976) starring Sean Connery and "The Seduction of Joe Tynan" (1979) starring and written by Alan Alda. The latter marked the beginning of a productive if variable creative partnership which yielded "The Four Seasons" (1981), "Sweet Liberty" (1986), "A New Life" (1988) and "Betsy's Wedding" (1990)--all produced by Bregman and written and directed by Alda. Bregman enjoys a reputation for being heavily involved in every aspect of his productions from development through casting, lensing, editing, and marketing. Bregman's productions also include the satirical fantasy "Simon" (1980), the directorial debut of Woody Allen's writing partner Marshall Brickman; the campy serpentine thriller "Venom" (1982) starring Klaus Kinski; and the action flick "Eddie Macon's Run" (1982). More recently he was responsible for "Whispers in the Dark" (1992), a psychodrama starring Annabella Sciorra, "Blue Ice" (HBO, 1992), a made-for-cable spy drama starring Michael Caine and Sean Young that was released theatrically overseas, and "The Real McCoy" (1993), a caper film starring Kim Basinger and Val Kilmer. He reunited with director Brian DePalma and star Al Pacino for "Carlito's Way" (1993), an ambitious gangster film about Puerto Rican organized crime. In 1974, Bregman co-founded the New York Advisory Council for Motion Pictures, Radio and TV of which he is currently chairman. The Council has encouraged film and TV productions to film in New York City.
