Beginning in the 1980s, producer Charles Roven was responsible for producing some of the most successful films in Hollywood history. His credits include "12 Monkeys" (1995), "Batman Begins" (2005), "Three Kings" (1999) and "American Hustle" (2013), which he was nominated for Best Picture at the 2014 Academy Awards. But while Roven was responsible for major hits like "The Dark Knight" (2008) and "City of Angels" (1998), he also had some major flops on his record, including hip-hop duo Outkast's verture into period musical drama "Idlewild" (2006), the critically-panned heist thriller "The Bank Job" (2008) and a notorious Nicolas Cage flop, "Season of the Witch" (2011). Aside from his string of box-office successes, Roven was also known for being one of the targets of the Anthony Pellicano wiretap investigation, when Pellicano, a well-known private investigator, was hired by director John McTiernan, who was later charged in court with making false statements about the incident and spent some time in a federal prison as a result. In 1985, Roven married a fellow Hollywood power player, producer Dawn Steel. She rose through the ranks at Paramount to become one of the first women ever to run a major Hollywood studio. The couple had one child and remained together until Steel's death from brain cancer in 1997. Roven later remarried, to Stephanie Haymes, daughter of entertainers Dick Haymes and Fran Jeffries.
