    Chatting with Mr. Bruckheimer - Los Angeles Times 11/21/06

    Chatting with Mr. Bruckheimer

    Hollywood's No. 1 hitmaker gets right to the point about what makes a project fly.

    A few weeks ago a publicist asked called to see if we would like to speak with producer Jerry Bruckheimer about his new film "Déjà Vu." "Absolutely!" we said. And why not? Bruckheimer is responsible for some of the most successful movies and television franchises in the world, including "Beverly Hills Cop," "Top Gun," the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, "CSI" (and its two spinoffs), "The Amazing Race" and "Cold Case." He was once dubbed, appropriately, "the man with the golden gut."

    "Talk to him about how he decides which projects to get behind," said our editor. "Ask him about what stories he likes to tell."

    On the day of our appointed interview, Bruckheimer's people called early. It seemed the producer's interviews were moving along more quickly than expected. When we spoke with him, we understood why. During the interview Bruckheimer was totally pleasant and polite, but he didn't give us a thing, except that he likes movies with great characters and beginnings, middles and ends — in that order. True to super-mogul form, Jerry Bruckheimer, we soon discovered, is a man who does not waste words.

    Here's how it went:

    JB: Hello?

    Those have got to be the lamest, most innane questions a reporter ever uttered? I guess they put their most junior person on it. LA TIMES? I worry about the future of reporting, if that is the standard.
