We are so proud 🙌🏼 to see that @variety has chosen one of our best friends and closest collaborators @hhgarcia41 as their BILLION DOLLAR 💰 PRODUCER. We have worked on seven films together and we’re about to start number eight.

Congratulations Hiram on becoming one of our industry’s top global 🌎 producers 🎥 If you can dream it, you can do it 💫 Hiram is living proof. @therock @danygarciaco
FPC flanking the baddest 💪🏼 and best bounty hunter on the planet 🌎 MFer LUKE HOBBS!! Not so easy to be in a pic 📸 with the eternally handsome @therock who lights up the entire room with his charisma in a blink of an eye 👁 But if that’s the cost of admission, it’s well worth it 😉 @scotify and I were honored and very grateful to be guests of brothers Dwayne Johnson and mega-producer Hiram Garcia @hhgarcia41 at the World Premiere of HOBBS AND SHAW. We are so fired up🔥to support their movie to no end. That’s what family does. We are all in this game together.

With endless excitement, tons of laughs and some real heart, HOBBS AND SHAW delivers all that and then some 🍿😎🍿 We’ve never experienced a movie like this. It’s a total blast, the action is insane and it will blow your mind 🤯 EPIC is the only way to describe it.

They also have some of the coolest and baddest female co-stars who give @therock a run for his money (maybe even kick his ass *spoiler*) @vanessa__kirby @eizagonzalez 🥋🤩 And super-villain @idriselba doesn’t have the odds in his favor (2vs1) yet he still gets the job done handily.

I love the advice— if you want to be successful you have to believe in yourself. Of course, you need a great team around you, but it all starts with you. It’s simple to say but not so easy to always follow. I just watched the @gabepolsky doc IN SEARCH OF GREATNESS on the plane (thank you #EmilyBlunt for the recommendation) which supports that philosophy. It studies and analyzes three of the greatest athletes of all time // Jerry Rice, Pele and Wayne Gretzky. The thesis is this: you don’t need to be the fastest, the most talented or the smartest...but you need the passion, the creativity and the will to win 🙌🏼🙌🏼 It’s inspiring and worthy of your valuable time.
Also the doc touches on the importance of finding a balance between discipline and spontaneity, which makes a lot of sense. Keep an eye 👁 for the brilliant @sirkenrobinson 🧠 He views life through a different lens.
Be great. Be you.

#TBT Hanging in Kauai with ace director #JaumeColletSerra 🌴 This was just days before we started shooting DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE. Jaume always rocks that same gangster look and that steady-as-it-goes cool energy, even when the pressure of a summer tentpole movie is on. Level-heads always prevail. He directed one heck of a movie that includes a world class cast, anchored by the uber-talented @therock and his badass adventure partner #EmilyBlunt 👊🏼 like you’ve never seen her before. I certainly know I’m excited...hope you are 🌎! This one is so fun, filled with massive adventure and will stir up some real emotion 💛

🌟 Huge congratulations and major respect to @therock on this incredible cover and being named one of @Time’s 100 most influential people of 2019! 🌟@Gal_Gadot captured his essence perfectly in her article. And she’s right, "There is no one in Hollywood quite like the rock." In fact, there is no one quite like him in the world 🌎 nor will there ever be again. ⚡️⚡️ Everything you read, see and inherently know about him being an incredible, kind and authentic person is wholeheartedly true, and then some. 💥 He opens up to the world and shares his soul & mana with every person he meets and every one of his fans that he entertains. Dwayne is a rare jewel of extraordinary talent, crafted by his own hard work, combined with an authentic spirit.💫 He has had a tough path in life, yet he has accomplished everything with a huge, megawatt smile and a large dose of humility. (And hey, maybe a few sips of tequila along the way.) 😉🥃 Thank you DJ for your infectious positivity and warmth; and, for so generously inspiring others to fight endlessly for their dreams. 🙌🏻 Hats off to you for this awesome achievement brother DJ. FPC proudly raises a glass to you! 🥂 #Time100 #AudienceFirst #AsDJAlwaysSays #ItsNiceToBeImportantButItsImportantToBeNice #WhatABrilliantTeam @danygarciaco @hhgarcia41 @bslater9
What a cool and super educational experience I had this past weekend. I had the honor of being invited to be a guest speaker at @upgradelabs Bulletproof Biohacking Conference and also to be interviewed on their #Unstoppable podcast. I was so impressed by @michellesorro who had the best energy and asked such insightful questions. First, all the attendees that I met blew me away with their positivity, warmth, intelligence and curiosity. Everyone at the conference was there to “upgrade" their lives in some shape or form connected to science and philosophy. Second, I learned so much about the concept of biohacking and how we can improve our energy, mind and physical being. I’ve long believed in the power that positivity and our mindset can have on our well-being, so it was incredible to meet people who are scientifically researching this and discovering how we can concretely apply this philosophy and technique to our lives. Grateful to be a part of this fascinating way of viewing the world. I was the only speaker invited from the movie industry 🤷🏼♂️ It was also pretty awesome to meet one of my favorite actors growing up who was in the audience of my conference - @matthewmodine 🌟who you may know from such classics as FULL METAL JACKET, MARRIED TO THE MOB, AND THE BAND PLAYED ON and one of my faves VISION QUEST! What a generous, talented and humble person. He’s now in @strangerthingstv so keep an eye out…and he knows a tremendous amount about separating hydrogen from it’s bond with oxygen and the power that can harness. 🤯
Huge appreciation for @amanda.mcveyy for inviting me to speak 👊🏼 You are a superstar 💫 And thank you @dave.asprey and your awesome team at Bulletproof. Cheers to my close friends @kp416 and @bslater9 for opening my mind to this world. @upgradelabs #Bulletproof #SuccessComesAsASideEffectOfSettingYourEgoAsideAndPursuingYourTruePurpose #ThePowerOfTurningNoIntoYes
Very exciting news today! 📰⚡️We are thrilled to announce that we have secured the rights with our long term partners at New Line/Warner Bros. to develop the first ever worldwide theatrical film for none other than one of the most beloved and recognizable icons around the globe - Hello Kitty! 😺🎥🍿🤗🎀 Hello Kitty was first designed in 1974 and has since exploded into a cultural phenomenon over the past four decades. She can be found in over 130 countries around the world on over 50,000 different products a year!💥We have been passionately pursuing these rights for almost five years now, including numerous trips to Tokyo. Over that time we have grown very close to our partners at Sanrio, and we are humbled and honored that President Tsuji, who founded the company over 40 years ago, has entrusted us with bringing her story to the big screen around the world. 🌎🌍🌏 With the positive values of friendship, kindness and tolerance that Hello Kitty embodies, in addition to her message of “Small Gift, Big Smile,” 🎁💝😃 there has never been a better time than now to share her story with the world. Can’t wait to get started and bring you all a visually dazzling, (hopefully) groundbreaking, and entertaining time at the movies! ✨🍿🎥 #HelloKitty #SmallGiftBigSmile #ConceptCharacterHeart (Link to @nytimes article in our bio)

Overdue thank you to my good friend and Hollywood heavyweight 🥊 @Todd_Garner for having me as a guest on his terrific and informative podcast “The Producer’s Guide.” Had a blast dissecting our industry and talking about collaborating with the one & only global 🌎 icon @TheRock! I really enjoyed sharing and reliving the story of my path to becoming a producer, which I hope can inspire other young producers (and rainmakers ☔️ ) to follow their dreams and never lose faith in their own journey.
Growing up in Miami in the 70’s (a very small city back then) with no connections to the industry whatsoever, I didn’t know the first thing about Hollywood other than that I loved and was wildly passionate about movies, so much so that I was inspired to move to LA to pursue filmmaking as a career. The road wasn’t always easy, but I knew producing movies was the only career choice for me. I never had a plan B.
I’ve always loved the art of storytelling, and all of us here are very focused on entertaining audiences around the world. We always strive to do that by producing high concept films with memorable characters, and if we do our jobs right, hopefully we even stir some emotion along the way.
For those of your pursuing a career in the entertainment industry or any industry for that matter, don’t ever lose faith. Make your mark. Always fight for what you love, and because of that it will never feel like a job.
If any of this sounds remotely interesting to you and you have a spare hour or so on your hands take a listen 😂 (Link in bio☝🏼) #TheProducersGuide
