Chris Weitz is an American film director, screenwriter, and producer. He is known for such films as About a Boy, American Pie and most importantly Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. A man of many a wiki page at sites such as Wikipedia, IMDB and of course Wookieepedia.

Chris was a guest on the Lust, Caution episode of Podback Mountcast. He was mined for information on his experience on directing sex scenes due to Lust, Caution's controversial and extensive sex scenes. He is a fan of the Blank Check podcast and was offered the Lust, Caution episode by Griffin and David in a last-ditch effort to get a good guest for one of Ang Lee's lesser-known efforts. To their surprise, Chris accepted enthusiastically - as it turned out, he was very familiar with the film and particularly the Alexandre Desplat score. As related during the episode, he himself has collaborated with Desplat many times, so he often uses the Lust, Caution score to "temp score" his own films during the editing process.

Weitz is in talks to produce the Ben Hosley joint Night Eggs, which was ordered straight to script.
