Hollywood mogul Andrew Form began his ascent to the producer's chair courtesy of a much-coveted job as the assistant to Jerry Bruckheimer on such opuses as Bad Boys (1995), Crimson Tide (1995), and The Rock (1996). In subsequent years, Form distinguished himself as a producer in his own right; he co-formed the shingle Platinum Dunes with Michael Bay and onetime Bay assistant Bradley Fuller. At Platinum, Form specialized in early 21st century remakes of horror classics that downplayed subtlety, upped the ante on graphic violence and gore, and generally made hefty box office returns. Early projects included the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror. In 2008, Form continued this trend with a slate that included projected remakes of films including Rosemary's Baby, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th.
