Jon Wanzek is an American engineer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who currently  serves as President of Bad Medicine Films, LLC which he formed in 2013. His first film as  producer was “Ten Thousand Saints” starring Ethan Hawke, Hailee Steinfeld, and Asa Butterfield which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. His follow up, Valley of Bones, was shot entirely in his home-state of North Dakota and went on a nation-wide Sony release.

Wanzek is back in the festival circuit and awards season with “Human Capital”, a drama staring Maya Hawke, Oscar-winning Marisa Tomei and Liev Shreiber which is premiering at Toronto Film Festival in 2019.Wanzek’s passion for history resulted in the development of “Fearless”, a presidential biopic tackling Theodore Roosevelt’s incredible true story of his escape from politics and adversity to become entrenched in fighting outlaws throughout the Badlands in his early twenties. Roosevelt would later claim that if it weren’t for his time in the Badlands he “would never become President.” The film is slated for a 2020 production and is being produced by Shaun Reddick (Blackkklansman, Get Out).
