Eventually, the company evolved into Embassy Pictures, and she advanced to vice president of creative affairs. While at Embassy, she served as the executive in charge of production on two films directed by Rob Reiner -This Is Spinal Tap (her first film credit) and The Sure Thing.
In 1985, Doran joined Paramount Pictures as senior vice president of production, and was eventually promoted to executive vice president of production. At Paramount, she oversaw the development and production of a number of films, including Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, The Naked Gun, Pet Sematary, and Ghost.

Article [cached]

I'm introduced to Lindsey Doran, the film's producer; then to Scott Frank, the film's screenwriter.

Frank and Doran have been developing Dead Again since 1986--when Frank first worked up the idea with producer Dennis Feldman. (The other key players are Sydney Pollack, through his company, Mirage; Bill Horberg of Paramount and Charles H. Maguire.) Scott Frank is arguably the least bitter screenwriter alive.
