Dylan Sellers - Details


DYLAN SELLERS was born in Los Angeles, studying first at the University of California at Berkeley, and then Hastings Law School, graduating with honors from both. He became a successful entertainment attorney at the firm of O'Melveny & Myers, but decided that it would be more fun to work in films rather than just legally represent them.

In 1993 Sellers joined Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation as Executive Vice President, Production, overseeing such films as "Kiss of Death," "The Edge," "The Crucible," "Nine Months," the smash hit comedy "There's Something About Mary" and the comedy "The Replacements."

In 1996, he took a hiatus from the industry and spent a year traveling throughout Southeast and Western Asia, including five months in India.

Sellers most recently produced "The Replacements," starring Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman. He served as producer on such projects as Walt Disney Television's "You Ruined My Life" and the features "The Great Panda Adventure," "Big Bully," "The Paper," "Passenger 57" and "Out to Sea."

Sellers makes his home in Los Angeles with wife Wendie Margolis and their five-year-old daughter, Natalie.
