He then turned a talented eye toward the film industry and has been thriving since.

Aziz caught the attention of Hollywood when he was named in Variety's "Top Ten Producers to Watch" list in 2011. Aziz has since become the driving force behind the production of films such as Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street, Jennifer Westfeldt's Friends With Kids, Scott Cooper's Out of the Furnace and Alexandre Aja's Horns. Most recently, Red Granite Pictures produced Bobby and Peter Farrelly's Dumb and Dumber To; released on November 14, 2014. It opened number one at the box office.

Aziz's development slate includes The Brigands of Rattleborge and The General. The Brigands of Rattleborge, the blacklist's number 1 script of 2006, is a western revenge story and The General is a gritty look at the story of George Washington.
