John D. Schofield
Producer John D. Schofield works with filmmakers from around the world. The son of a prominent Yorkshire hotelier, he initially studied at England's Guildhall School of Music and Drama, then moved to the U.S., where he gained behind-the-scenes experience in production working as a driver, grip, electrician, and in other hands-on jobs. In the late '60s, Schofield involved himself with the Italian film industry as a producer; in that capacity, he worked with some of the country's most famous directors, including Vittorio de Sica, Lina Wertmuller, and Giuliano Montaldo. Some of Schofield's American film credits include Romancing the Stone (1984) and Jerry Maguire (1996).
