Before focusing exclusively on film production, Nick Wechsler started his career as an entertainment attorney, then transitioned into music management. His clients included Steve Earle, John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten, Michael Penn, Chris Whitley, and The Band guitarist Robbie Robertson.
Nick’s film producing career involves a mix of independent and studio movies, such as 1989 Palme d'Or winner Sex, Lies, and Videotape, 1991 Golden Globe winner The Player, 2006 Oscar-nominated North Country, and 2007 Cannes Main Competition Selection We Own the Night.

In 2005, Nick established Nick Wechsler Productions, an independent film production company. Through collaboration with filmmakers, the company seeks to produce "smart, entertaining movies with a global outlook".
He produced Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike (2012), starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey, The Host, starring Saoirse Ronan, and has now produced two films penned by Pulitzer Prize winner Cormac McCarthy; 2009's The Road directed by John Hillcoat, and The Counselor (2013), directed by Academy Award winner Ridley Scott, starring Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Cameron Diaz. He also produced Jonathan Glazer's highly acclaimed third feature Under The Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson, which premiered at Toronto Film Festival in 2013.
