An inspiring and moving portrait of a cinema icon, Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck, examines the life and career of the legendary producer, from his family legacy (his father was 20th Century Fox-co-founder and studio head Darryl F. Zanuck), to his personal successes and challenges—first as president of 20th Century Fox, spearheading classics such as The Sound of Music, the original Planet of the Apes, and Patton, then as the producer of such defining movies as The Sting, Jaws, The Verdict, Cocoon, Driving Miss Daisy, and six films directed by Tim Burton.

Don't Say No features extensive conversations with Zanuck and his family, as well as exclusive interviews with such Hollywood notables as Clint Eastwood, Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Morgan Freeman, Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, William Friedkin and more.

This feature-length documentary was written, directed and produced by filmmaker Laurent Bouzereau (Five Came Back) for Amblin Television and TCM Originals, with Amblin's Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank & Steven Spielberg serving as executive producers.
