IAN BRYCE (Producer) is currently working on the Michael Bay film, TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, the sequel to the international blockbuster, TRANSFORMERS, based on the Hasbro children’s action figures of which Bryce was also a producer.

The first TRANSFORMERS was a worldwide success – the #3 movie of 2007, and the #19 movie of all- time domestically. With TRANSFORMERS 2, Bryce aims to repeat that success by once again making a fun family movie that entertains a broad global audience.

Between the two franchise films, Bryce worked with Peter Berg on the Will Smith- headliner, HANCOCK; one of 2008’s top grossing movies. Another collaboration with Michael Bay was on THE ISLAND. Bryce also produced Antoine Fuqua's drama TEARS OF THE SUN, starring Bruce Willis, and Sam Raimi's mega-blockbuster action adventure SPIDER-MAN - the top-grossing film in the U.S. in 2002.

He won a Golden Globe Award and earned Academy Award® and BAFTA nominations for his work as a producer on Steven Spielberg's widely acclaimed World War II drama SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. The movie won Best Picture honors from numerous critics’ organizations, including the New York, Los Angeles and Broadcast Film Critics associations. Bryce also shared a Producers Guild of America Award for the film. He went on to produce Cameron Crowe's nostalgic comedy-drama ALMOST FAMOUS, which won a Golden Globe for Best Picture - Musical or Comedy, and earned him Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for Best Picture.

Other producing credits include FORCES OF NATURE starring Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock; the action thriller HARD RAIN with Morgan Freeman and Christian Slater; Penelope Spheeris' big-screen version of the classic television series THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES; and Jan de Bont's blockbusters TWISTER as well as his directorial debut film, SPEED.

Born in England, Bryce started his career as a production assistant on the third installment of the first STAR WARS trilogy, RETURN OF THE JEDI. He moved up to second assistant director on Steven Spielberg's INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, and later served as a production manager on INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE. In addition, Bryce served as the line producer/production manager on Philip Kaufman's RISING SUN.

He was also an associate producer/production manager on Tim Burton's smash hit BATMAN RETURNS, and worked as a production manager on such films as Francis Ford Coppola's TUCKER; THE MAN AND HIS DREAM, Ron Howard's WILLOW and Joe Johnston's THE ROCKETEER.
