As an executive for New Line Cinema, Toby Emmerich was behind the company's string of hits in the 2000s. Among them were "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King," "Wedding Crashers," and "Sex and the City." Most notably, Emmerich helped the studio re-boot "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" franchise with 2006's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning," and went against conventional wisdom by launching a series of successful R-rated comedies. Emmerich began work at New Line Cinema in 1992 as the executive in charge of music, working on the soundtracks for "Boogie Nights," "Seven," and "Friday After Next," among others. In 2001, Emmerich was promoted to President of Production. On the basis of his successes, including serving as producer or executive producer on over 50 films, he moved up the corporate ladder to become both President and Chief Operating Officer in 2008. Notably, and distinguishing him from other executives, Emmerich has also worked as a screenwriter. He wrote 2000's "Frequency," about a policeman (Jim Caviezel) who communicates with his dead father (Randy Quaid) via a short-wave radio. Emmerich segued into filmmaking again, co-writing 2007's "The Last Mimzy" with Bruce Joel Rubin. Emmerich's brother is actor Noah Emmerich.
