American New Wave 25: Andrew Renzi

Within a short time span, Andrew Renzi has built himself a sharp film resume. Working in different producing capacities on such films as Antonio Campos’ Afterschool, Mark Ruffalo’s Sundance winner Sympathy for Delicious and a pair that we’ve featured in our New Wave list in Jody Lee Lipes (Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be the Same) and Alistair Banks Griffin (Two Gates of Sleep – see pic of Renzi working on actor David Call), Renzi is an up-and-coming producer who has a knack for sizing up talent beyond the pages of a script.

Getting his start in the business by working for Sony Pictures, Luke Greenfield’s Wide Awake Productions, and American Empirical Pictures under writer/director Wes Anderson, Renzi’s background is actually in playwriting and screenwriting (Brown University) – his first film credit comes via his own 2007 short film, Bloom. Currently on tap, he’s executive producing Sean Durkin’s directorial debut (Martha Marcy May Marlene), and recently helped Mickey Rourke on Wild Horses – the two decade long project in script form that has Tony Kaye attached to direct. No clue as to what hat he’ll where next, but he’ll definitely be a name to watch out for in the indie film sphere.
