John Miranda is an award-winning producer and literary manager whose work includes collaborations with some of the entertainment industry’s most acclaimed storytellers.
Miranda began his film career in 1990 at Amblin Entertainment as Steven Spielberg’s personal assistant, where his initiation into the world of film included working alongside Spielberg during the development and pre-production on SCHINDLER'S LIST, JURASSIC PARK, and HOOK. Within his first year, Miranda’s instincts for storytelling caught the attention of Amblin’s creative team, and he was promoted to the company’s story department and began forging relationships with some of the industry’s most exciting writers.
Miranda’s early success led to a Story Editor position with one of his cinematic heroes, renowned director, Norman Jewison. Miranda was instrumental in the acquisition and development of Jewison’s highest profile projects from the 90s, including THE HURRICANE starring Denzel Washington, and ONLY YOU, starring Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey, Jr. Miranda further distinguished himself by developing and selling Ryan Muphy’s first feature screenplay, WHY CAN'T I BE AUDREY HEPBURN?, and he was pivotal in the development of Greg Berlanti’s first feature, THE BROKEN HEARTS CLUB.
Having established a reputation for identifying and mentoring emerging talent, Miranda caught the attention of entrepreneur, Ken Lipper, and together they launched a New York-based film company, Ken Lipper Productions. Miranda oversaw production on the Academy Award winning documentary, THE LAST DAYS (directed by James Moll), as well as the late Alan Rickman’s directing debut, THE WINTER GUEST, starring Emma Thompson. Miranda also collaborated with Broadway hit-makers Steven Sater (SPRING AWAKENING) and Scott Ellis (TAKE ME OUT; MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL).
After a successful chapter in New York, Miranda was approached to work with director James Mangold (FORD V. FERRARI; LOGAN) at TreeLine Film. As Vice President of Production, Miranda oversaw TreeLine’s robust slate of film and TV projects, including the critically acclaimed 3:10 TO YUMA starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, KNIGHT & DAY, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, the ABC series MEN IN TREES, as well as the film adaption of Richard Ford’s award-winning novel, THE SPORTSWRITER, for HBO.
In 2014 Miranda formed John Miranda Entertainment, a production and management company, where he produces own slate of film and TV projects, and manages the careers of emerging writers and directors. Miranda produced the 2018 feature, THE KEEPING HOURS (starring Carrie Coon and Lee Pace) for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse, and he set up Michael Davidoff’s dark comedy, DEEDS, at HBO Max.
Miranda is currently packaging a number of feature and TV projects, including OLD & UGLY, a feature drama/comedy to be directed by Michael Medico; CALL ME BY MY NAMETAG, a half-hour musical-comedy by award-winning composer/lyricist, Ben Bonnema; THE HEALER, a half-hour drama by award-winning playwright, Brooke Berman; and BOY WONDER, a feature thriller to be directed by Academy Award–winning filmmaker James Moll.
Miranda is a graduate of the University of California at Davis with a Bachelor of Arts in Rhetoric & Communication and Political Science. He has guest lectured at several film schools, including NYU, USC, and UCLA, and he has served on faculty for numerous production and screenwriting seminars throughout the U.S. and Canada.
