The company's first hit film would turn out to be 1999's "Runaway Bride" (a romantic comedy that reunited Richard Gere and Julia Roberts of "Pretty Woman" fame), while another blockbuster followed five years later, 2004's boxing drama "Million Dollar Baby." Directed by Clint Eastwood and produced by Rosenberg, the film starred Eastwood, Hilary Swank, and Morgan Freeman, and won a total of four Oscar Awards in 2005, including "Best Motion Picture.
