Hey, famous actors need something to do with their time other than diving into swimming pools full of gold, Scrooge McDuck style. Some of them have turned to producing, ranging from “I am actually going to work on getting this film made” to “I am going to pay for it and get an executive producer credit” to “I am going to slap my name on this thing so it and/or I look good” to “my production company did this one, but I wasn’t really involved on a personal level.” The world of Hollywood is a strange and wonderful place. Whichever type of producer we’re talking, here are 15 movies that have a name you might not have expected in their credits.
