The Hollywood director Brett Ratner has been set to produce the upcoming Oscars 2012 along with Don Mischer.

The ‘Rush Hour’ director, Brett Ratner has been announced, as the producer of the Oscars 2012. He would co-produce the show along with Don Mischer, the veteran TV show producer. Don would be the director of the show for the second consecutive year.

The news was announced by Tom Sherak, The Academy President. On being chosen as a producer for 84th Annual Academy Awards, Brett said that, he was shocked, after he was informed about being the producer.

He also said that, his one of the dreams was to be a member of the academy. But it went beyond his dreams, which was unbelievable, as he just wanted to be a filmmaker. He revealed that, he was approached with the proposal a few weeks ago.

The ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ director also shared that, he took some time to think about it, before he met Mischer and decided to do it. The academy decided to go at the very first meeting at the Beverly Glen deli.

Don said that, Brett is a risk-taker and loves to take up the challenges. The ideas just flow from him and he would make it fun. Don teamed up with Bruce Cohen for the 2011 Oscar show, last February.

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards was hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway, which was criticized negatively, which managed to pull just 37.6 million viewers, which resulted a dip of 10% compared to the Oscar show of previous year, hosted by Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

The 84th Annual Academy Awards will be held on February 26, 2012 at the Kodak Theater at Hollywood and Highland Center. The nominations will be announced on January 24, 2012 at 5.30AM PST at Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
