The 25 Most Influential People in Comic Book Movies: #21 Gale Anne Hurd

Founder of Pacific Western Productions, Gale Anne Hurd has produced such great films as The Terminator, Aliens, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. She has, in fact, been credited with creating the “event” motion picture. Her first comic book film was the 1999 adaptation of Dark Horse’s Virus, which she produced with Dark Horse chief #6 Mike Richardson as executive producer.  In 2003 and 2004 she produced Ang Lee’s Hulk and Jonathan Hensleigh’s The Punisher (starring Thomas Jane) both to disappointing reviews.  She is credited, however, as a producer of The Incredible Hulk, released June 13, 2008, starring Edward Norton, and Punisher: War Zone, scheduled for release on December 5, 2008. Both of these films promise to be far superior to their predecessors.  Hollywood.com reports an announcement that Gale Anne Hurd will be producing a film adaptation of the toy line and Marvel Comics title Micronauts.  No release date has been confirmed.
