Brett Ratner - Brett Ratner & Don Mischer To Produce 84th Oscars

Movie moguls Brett Ratner and Don Mischer have signed on to produce the 2012 Oscars telecast.
Mischer produced and directed this year's (11) Academy Awards show but this will be Rush Hour director Ratner's first involvement with the Oscars.
Newly re-elected Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak admits Ratner was an easy hire for him: "I was so impressed with Brett when I met with him to discuss the Oscar show. He has an incredible love of film and its history and is a true student of the business of movies.
"He’s unbelievably creative and knows how to take risks that are both interesting and inspiring. Together with Don Mischer, who, by the way, just earned an Emmy nomination for his work on the 83rd Academy Awards, I think these two will give us a fantastic Oscar show that you won’t want to miss."
Ratner adds, "Making movies has been my dream since childhood, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have made several, but the Oscar show is in a league of its own. It will be fantastic to work with a live television master like Don to meld the glamour of legendary Hollywood with the enormous talents who thrill moviegoers today."
The 2012 Oscars will take place on 26 February at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
