Who is Joel Douglas?

Joel Douglas is an American movie producer.

The second son of Kirk Douglas and Diana Dill, he was born one day after his mother's 24th birthday. His paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Gomel in Belarus. His mother was from Devonshire Parish, Bermuda; Douglas's maternal grandfather, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Melville Dill, served as Attorney General of Bermuda and was commanding officer of the Bermuda Militia Artillery.

Joel chose not to follow his father and older brother into acting, opting instead to work behind the camera, producing several movies throughout the 1970s and 80s.

Much of Douglas' work has centered on projects involving his family, including acting as co-producer on The Jewel of the Nile and Romancing the Stone, being an assistant director on One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and in 2003, acting as associate producer on It Runs in the Family, which featured Kirk, Michael and Michael's son Cameron.
