After forming Vertigo Entertainment in 2001, Lee earned his first producing credit in 2002 as executive producer on Gore Verbinski’s blockbuster “The Ring.” He went on to produce the 2004 haunted house horror “The Grudge,” which, upon its release broke the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time for a horror film.
