Ivan Reitman Wiki Biography

Ivan Reitman was born on 27 October 1946, in Komarno, Czechoslovakia, of part-Jewish descent. Ivan is a director and film producer, best known for his comedy work during the 1980s as well as the 1990, and he also owns The Montecito Picture Company which was founded in 2000. All of his efforts have helped put his net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Ivan Reitman? As of early-2017, sources estimate a net worth that is at $100 million, mostly earned through a successful career in film. He has made numerous successful films including “Ghostbusters”, “Kindergarten Cop”, “Space Jam” and the Academy Award- nominated film “Up in the Air”. All of these achievements have ensured the position of his wealth.

Ivan’s family moved to Canada as refugees in 1950, with both his parents having survived the harshness of World War II. He attended Oakwood Collegiate and during his time there, was part of the Twintone Four singing group. He later attended McMaster University and would graduate in 1969 with a degree in Music. During his time at the University, he directed and produced several short films.

After his studies, Reitman began producing with CITY-TV, but only had a short tenure there as he was fired during his first year. He went on to produce the stage play “Spellbound” which would later become the Broadway production entitled “The Magic Show”. He then started venturing into commercial films, producing “Rabid” and “Shivers” which were directed by David Cronenberg. His big break came when he produced “National Lampoon’s Animal House” which led to the film “Meatballs” in 1979. He then began focusing on creating comedies, with films such as “Ghostbusters”, “Ghostbusters II”, “Dave”, “Six Days, Seven Nights”, and “My Super Ex-Girlfriend”; his net worth was now well established.

In the 1990s, Ivan took a step back from directing, and focused more as an executive producer or producer. He worked through his company Northern Lights Entertainment, and was responsible for producing “Space Jam”, “Private Parts” and “EuroTrip”. He founded the McMaster Film Board at McMaster University, and was rewarded by being inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame during 2008., and he then founded the film production company called The Montecito Picture Company. In 2009, Ivan produced the comedy “I Love You, Man” which starred Jason Segel and Paul Rudd, and followed this up with “Up in the Air” which would earn an Academy Award nomination. He planned to be the director of “Chloe”, but backed out when he didn’t get the cast he wanted, but stayed as a producer for the film, which became his most successful project financially. One of his latest projects includes “Draft Day” which starred Kevin Costner.

Reitman has been known to have many projects in the pipeline. He originally wanted to create a Batman as well as a Wonder Woman film, and was also set to direct “Ghostbusters III” before Paul Feig was hired – the film then went on reboot and would be released in 2016. He was also reportedly planning to make “Space Jam 2”.

For his personal life, it is known that Ivan has been married to Genevieve Robert since 1976. They have three children, and their son Jason Reitman is responsible for directing “Juno”.

# Quote
1 [on John Belushi and Animal House (1978)] What John brought was this wonderful energy based on the comedies he loved from the 50s – The Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello – that physicality of the great American early comedians, against this very brash and contemporary way of speaking that the script had. It made it very special.. But when I worked with him before the movie and SNL, he was Brando onstage. He was the guy you couldn’t take your eyes off. One of the great tragedies is that with his addictions he lost control of all his talent.
2 [on the comedy of Melissa McCarthy] She’s certainly extraordinarily talented. She has a way of using her physicality. And there’s something about her nimbleness in moving a fairly hefty body around that is humorous, has been for generations.
3 [on current comedy, 2013] The world has become more abrasive, possibly because of social media. But people said that about us. The sexuality seems to have lessened. There’s more squeamishness about nudity and sex, but there’s a lot more scatological interest today than there seemed to be thirty years ago. It’s a weird shift.
4 [film-making advice to his son Jason] Your job is not to make things funny. Your job is to tell the truth on a daily basis.
5 This is not my generation. I’m of the baby boom generation. We think we invented free love.

During the trial, the men who went on to form Northern Lights Entertainment, were offered $175,000 by MGM to make a feature to be called “Foxy Ladies”. They were the first Canadians convicted under Canada’s decency laws, despite widespread critical acclaim and support from the arts community. They were fined $300.00 and put on a year’s probation.
