Today, she's the superstar producer of the X-Men franchise, Logan, Deadpool, and FX's Legion -- not to mention classic films like Ladyhawke, Dave, Free Willy, and Pretty in Pink. But before she was one of the most powerful people in Hollywood, Lauren Shuler Donner was in charge of producing her very first feature film, Mr. Mom, which starred Michael Keaton, Teri Garr, Martin Mull and was originally written by none other than John Hughes. In this episode of the Shout! Takes podcast, she recounts her time working with Hughes and TV producing mogul Aaron Spelling, finding the perfect house, and Michael Keaton's pitch-perfect performance as an inexperienced stay-at-home dad.
