Brian Grazer Has Stepped Up To Replace Brett Ratner As Oscars Producer

Brian Grazer

After Brett Ratner’s messy resignation following his use of a homophobic slur, Brian Grazer has stepped up to replace him as Oscars producer.

Mega-producer Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “The Da Vinci Code”) was one of the major names floated as a possible fill-in before the official appointment.

Grazer also co-produced “Tower Heist” with Ratner, and is a friend of the embattled director.

Now he just needs to find a host.
