When the 94th Annual Academy Awards air, Will Packer‘s name will scroll on our TV’s as producer… Let that sink in!
Even though producing the Oscar’s will be new territory for Will, he’s up for the challenge.
“The power, the beauty, the romance of the imagery in movies has always attracted me. I’m fully embracing the challenge of bringing an ode to one of the most iconic mediums in the world to life. What an honor.”
Getting Packer to sign on for this role is major! Not only is he a Black man, but his work speaks for him: His film and television projects include This Christmas, Stomp the Yard, Straight Outta Compton, Ride Along, Girls Trip, Think Like a Man, Obsessed, and About Last Night to name a few. Outside of his producer credits, he is also one of the co-founder’s of Bounce TV.
The 94th annual Academy Awards are set to air March 27th on ABC and I’ll be watching and cheering Mr. Packer on!
