Description:
Eric Fellner, CBE (born 1959) is a film producer.

Life and career

Fellner went to Cranleigh School in Surrey, England from 1972-77. He attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. He is a good friend of Hugh Grant, who is the star of some of Working Title's biggest box office hits. Fellner and his long-time partner, model Laura Bailey, have two children together.

He was awarded the C.B.E. (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2005 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to the British film industry.

Fellner works with Working Title Films in London with Tim Bevan. Among Fellner's more than 60 films as producer or executive producer are Moonlight and Valentino, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Dead Man Walking, Fargo, Notting Hill, United 93 and Bridget Jones's Diary.

Working Title Films signed a deal with Universal Studios in 1999 for a reported $600 (USD) million, which gave Bevan and Fellner the power to commission projects with a budget of up to $35 (USD) million without having to consult their paymasters. It is now Britain’s largest independent production company with offices in London and Los Angeles. Successes include Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) which has grossed over $250 (USD) million worldwide. Dead Man Walking and Fargo won Oscars in 1996 and 1997 respectively, while Elizabeth (1998) and Atonement (2007) were both nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award.
