The fiercely independent producer had an impressive track record for spotting new talent, having worked with a number of well-known directors, including Oliver Stone, Werner Herzog, Kathryn Bigelow, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Alex Cox, Brian De Palma, Abel Ferrara, Terrence Malick, John Milius, and Mary Harron.

The early De Palma movies “Sisters” and “Phantom of the Paradise,” as well as Terrence Malick’s breakthrough feature “Badlands,” starring Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen, were all directed by Pressman.

Pressman met his future wife, actor Annie McEnroe, on the set of Oliver Stone’s directorial debut, “The Hand,” which marked the beginning of their long-term working relationship. The subsequent films “Talk Radio,” “Wall Street,” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” by Stone were all produced by Pressman.
