Brett Ratner to Produce Oscar’s


Brett Ratner, former hip hop video director-turned-Hollywood-filmmaker, will be coproducing the 84th Annual Academy Awards.

Ratner helmed videos for Redman, LL Cool J, Heavy D., Busta Rhymes and others in the 1990s before hitting the big screen with the Chris Tucker vehicle Rush Hour.

“I have some ideas,” Brett Ratner told Variety. “But we literally just got the job a couple of hours ago so haven’t real had a chance to talk about that.” The show takes place on February 26th, 2012.

Aside from the popular Rush Hour series, Ratner has directed X-Men: The Last Stand, Money Talks, and the upcoming Tower Heist.
