Broken Road Productions is run by Todd Garner, a veteran producer and Hollywood creative executive with a unique gift for creating and nurturing mainstream, commercial motion pictures.  In various capacities throughout his career, Garner has developed, overseen, executive produced or produced well over 150 movies, many of them major hits for their respective studios.  Formerly a founding partner of Revolution Studios and before that head of production at Disney, Garner founded Broken Road Productions in summer 2005.

Known for his strong relationships with top actors, directors and writers, Garner has numerous projects in various stages of development, pre-production, production, and post-production.

Hot on the heels of producing the runaway hit PAUL BLART: MALL COP, which grossed over $183 million at the box office worldwide, Broken Road is producing KNIGHT AND DAY for Fox. The film stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz and is directed by James Mangold.  The action-comedy follows a CIA agent who may or may not be rogue (Cruise) who teams with an innocent (Diaz) on a whirlwind adventure to help save the world. KNIGHT AND DAY is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2010.

THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE, which Broken Road is executive producing for Walt Disney Pictures, is slated for release on July 16, 2010. Directed by Jon Turteltaub, the project stars Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Teresa Palmer, Monica Bellucci and Alfred Molina.  The film follows a sorcerer (Cage) who leaves his workshop in the hands of his apprentice (Baruchel) who is not fully trained in the ways of magic.

Broken Road is also producing MGM and Sony’s ZOOKEEPER which comes out July 8, 2011.  The second partnership with Happy Madison Productions and Kevin James after MALL COP, ZOOKEEPER is about the animals at a zoo who break their code of silence to help a down-on-his-luck zookeeper (James) find love.

Projects slated to start production in 2010 include HERE COMES THE BOOM, a comedy starring Kevin James and Selma Hayek at Sony which marks Broken Road’s third partnership with Happy Madison Productions and Kevin James; IRON JACK, to star Russell Brand and directed by Mark Palansky, Columbia’s 1930’s-set comedic action adventure about a renowned novelist and his quest for a legendary treasure; the romantic comedy IS HE THE ONE? at Fox; JACK & JILL with Adam Sandler at Sony; Disney’s SCIENCE FAIR, about a science fair where all the kids’ projects come to life.
