Movie Producing gets tougher

Lawrence "Larry" Gordon got his first producing credit 37 years ago. His productions have included such blockbusters as "48 Hrs.," "Die Hard" and "Watchmen," so he was a natural to fill in when a panelist dropped out of "Producing Blockbusters," one of more than two dozen panels at the Producers Guild of America's Produced By 2010 Conference during the weekend at Fox Studios.

Gordon was joined by industry veterans Mark Johnson and Richard Zanuck, who noted they were in an auditorium named after his father, legendary studio boss Darryl F. Zanuck.

It soon was clear that when producers talk among themselves, the conversations get candid. A frustrated Gordon said it's rougher than ever before being a top Hollywood producer.
