Brian K. Vaughn, others make HR’s ‘Next Gen’ list

thomas_dekker15 years ago, Hollywood Reporter put out an issue (what, you forgot it was a print publication?) dedicated to the “next generation” of Hollywood heavyweights, and they’ve been doing it ever since. This year, Brian K. Vaughn, writer of graphic novel series “Ex Machina” and “Y: The Last Man” joined 34 other people as being worthy of HR’s “Next Gen” status, and here are some others on the list:

Thomas Dekker, 20: Gained prominence as John Connor in the TV series “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” for Fox; now he’s got the lead in the upcoming remake of Fame and wrote and directed a drama about showbiz called Whore. Hmm… fame whore…

Hannah Minghella, 29: Daughter of Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella, one of her next projects as Sony Animaton’s president of production is the upcoming adaptation of The Smurfs.

Jeremy Steckler, 34: He’s the guy who helped oversee Juno, and is currently working on Nia Vardalos’ My Life in Ruins as a senior vice president of production for Fox Searchlight.
