Established in 1991 by award-winning producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, The Kennedy/Marshall Company has provided commercially successful and critically acclaimed entertainment to audiences worldwide.
Prior to the company’s beginning, Kennedy and Marshall, along with filmmaker Steven Spielberg, were the founding partners of Amblin Entertainment. While at Amblin, Kennedy and Marshall produced some of the most memorable film experiences of the 1980s. Combining these early successes with a now veteran approach, The Kennedy/Marshall Company has set a tone of excellence in the field of entertainment that is second to none.
The Kennedy/Marshall Company has been nominated for six Academy Awards for producing the following films: War Horse, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Munich, Seabiscuit, The Sixth Sense, and Lincoln. In November 2018, Kennedy and Marshall received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, an honor presented to creative producers “whose body of work reflects a consistently high quality of motion picture production.”
Beyond its roots in feature film production, The Kennedy/Marshall Company services a wide range of entertainment opportunities, encompassing television, digital media, live theater performances, as well as documentaries including Emmy-Nominated The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, Laurel Canyon, Sinatra: All or Nothing at All, and Emmy-Winning The Redeem Team.
As of June 2012, Frank Marshall has taken over as the sole principal of The Kennedy/Marshall Company after long-standing partner Kathleen Kennedy became the Chairman of Lucasfilm Ltd.
The Kennedy/Marshall Company is located in Santa Monica, California.
With a career spanning over 50 years and more than 80 films, Frank Marshall has helped shape American cinema, producing some of the most successful and enduring films of all time. Starting in 1967 as an assistant to Peter Bogdanovich on their first film, Targets, and then as location manager on The Last Picture Show, Marshall worked closely with Bogdanovich for years, eventually making ten pictures together.
