Jill Footlick is an independent film producer. Her company, Grow Pictures, was launched in 2006 to develop and produce films of significance from both established and emerging filmmakers, and from both adapted and original screenplays.
Ms. Footlick graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in philosophy. She then began her film industry career, working as a production coordinator on features both large (such as Mimi Leder's The Peacemaker) and small (such as James Mangold's Heavy).
Subsequently, for Evening producer Jeffrey Sharp, she line-produced Kimberly Peirce's Boys Don't Cry (starring Hilary Swank in her Academy Award-winning performance) and Kenneth Lonergan's You Can Count on Me. She also produced Kelly Anderson's Shift; and co-produced Franc. Reyes' Empire, starring John Leguizamo.
In 2001, Ms. Footlick co-founded Archer Entertainment. For Archer, she produced Alan Hruska's Nola (starring Emmy Rossum) and The Warrior Class (starring Erica Leehrsen). Her next projects as producer were Sue Kramer's Gray Matters (starring Heather Graham) and, reuniting with Jeffrey Sharp, Patrick Stettner's The Night Listener (starring Toni Collette of Evening opposite Robin Williams).
Reteaming with writer/director Franc. Reyes and star John Leguizamo, Ms. Footlick is producing Grow Pictures' first feature, The Ministers. The romantic thriller is currently in post-production. She is also producing Grow Pictures' second feature, the thriller Manhattan Nocturne, to star Campbell Scott for director Brian DeCubellis.
