Life and career

Landau was born in New York City, New York, the son of Edie, a producer, and Ely A. Landau, a studio executive and producer. He is from a Jewish family.[1] He attended the USC School of Cinematic Arts. He is best known for producing Titanic, a film which won him an Academy Award, and most recently, Avatar. Throughout the early '90s, Landau was Executive Vice President of Feature Film Production at Twentieth Century Fox.

In 2009, Landau and James Cameron produced the science fiction blockbuster Avatar, which has since become the highest-grossing film of all time, surpassing Titanic, which had previously held that position. Avatar earned Landau his second Academy Award nomination, although the award went to the producers of The Hurt Locker.
