From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nicholas Jarecki (born 1979) is an American writer and filmmaker, best known for his 2005 documentary The Outsider.

A native of New York City, Jarecki attended New York University's film school and graduated at age 19.

He is the author of Breaking In: How 20 Film Directors Got Their Start (Doubleday 2002).

Jarecki's documentary, The Outsider, followed film director James Toback (who was one of the 20 profiled in Jarecki's book) as he made a movie with no script in 12 days. The film contains interviews with Woody Allen, Harvey Keitel, Robert Downey, Jr., Brooke Shields, Norman Mailer and others. The Outsider was purchased by Showtime and Netflix after its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and was premiered on television on August 9, 2007[1].

In late 2005, Jarecki approached author Bret Easton Ellis about collaborating to create a screen adaptation of Ellis' bestseller The Informers. In 2007 they completed their original screenplay and began production of the film as executive producers. The film was premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Through his production company, Green Room Films, Jarecki has several forthcoming feature and television projects including Tyson (2008), James Toback's new documentary about the legendary heavyweight, which Jarecki produced and premiered at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, winning a special jury prize. It is also playing at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

In October 2009, Tyson was nominated for an IFP/Gotham Best Documentary award [2]

Jarecki is the founder of beatsheetcentral.com, a popular screenwriting resource. He is the brother of documentary makers Andrew Jarecki and Eugene Jarecki.
