Production Designer Molly Hughes spent more than a decade working as an Art Director, most notably in London on six of the Harry Potter franchise films with Academy Award-winning Production Designer Stuart Craig. She also served as an Art Director on Steven Spielberg’s War Horse and as Supervising Art Director on Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy.
Since making the leap to Production Designer in 2012 with director Max Nichols’s Two Night Stand, starring Miles Teller, she has worked with Oscar-winning directors Amy Berg and Charlie Kaufman, as well as the renowned Norwegian director, Joachim Trier, on his first English language film, Louder Than Bombs.
Hughes designed the highly acclaimed box office success, The Fault in Our Stars, for Temple Hill Entertainment and Fox 2000 with director Josh Boone—a collaboration revisited for Boone’s next film, X-Men: The New Mutants, to be released in summer 2019.
She recently wrapped production in the UK on the Walt Disney motion picture, The One and Only Ivan (based on Katherine Applegate's Newbery Medal-winning and best-selling novel) with acclaimed theater director Thea Sharrock, to be released in August 2020. Molly is currently working with Oscar-winning director Ron Howard on his film adaptation of JD Vance’s novel Hillbilly Elegy, starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close.
