Jon Peters Career
Jon produced the Barbra Streisand-starring film “A Star Is Born” in 1976. Despite having a $6 million budget, the movie made over $100 million worldwide and received four Academy Award nominations. Barbra Streisand, a multi-platinum selling recording artist, later had several platinum and gold recordings produced by Peters. Together with fellow producer Peter Guber, Jon established Polygram Productions in 1980.
After producer Neil Bogart joined the group, Boardwalk Productions was established; regrettably, Bogart went away in 1982. The Guber-Peters partnership produced movies including “Caddyshack,” “An American Werewolf in London,” “Flashdance,” and “The Color Purple.” Warner Brothers made them the most lucrative production deal ever as a result of their success.
Jon and Peter’s 1989 movie “Batman,” which had a $35 million budget, ended up being Warners’ most successful production to date. Warner Brothers made Guber and Peters an offer for a deal worth several million dollars as a result of their enormous success. Sony Pictures knocked on their door shortly after they had signed their contract and made them an offer to purchase Guber-Peters Entertainment for $50 million.
If they agreed, they would share leadership of the Sony Pictures board of directors as co-chairmen. They still had a contract with Warner Bros., which was the sole catch. For $1 billion, Warner sued the group and Sony for breach of contract. Sony and Warner Brothers agreed to a $500 million deal to end their separate contracts.
As a result, Peter Guber and Jon Peters were given the opportunity to co-chair Sony Pictures. They have no prior experience running a sizable studio. Peters and Guber oversaw the production of a large number of high-profile, expensive movies when they were in charge of Sony, many of which were commercial failures.
Sony lost around $3 billion during Peter Guber’s tenure while spending $8 billion on production and other expenses. Peter and Jon earned severance packages of $30–50 million apiece when they left Sony in the middle of the 1990s. In the 1990s, Jon bought the film rights to Superman.
Throughout his whole production career, he made several attempts to complete a Superman movie, even thinking of using Nicolas Cage as the star. Peters has a substantial interest in the box office success of both the 2013 version of “Man of Steel” and the 2006 version of “Superman Returns.”
He subsequently acknowledged that despite having had no part in their production, he profited $85 million from just those two movies. Producer Christopher Nolan refused to take him to the location where Man of Steel was shot despite his request. He also had a similar part in “A Star Is Born,” the 2018 adaptation.
