Waleed B. Ali is a film producer. Along with his brother Malik B. Ali, he is co-founder of Maljack Productions. Before entering the film production industry, Malik and Waleed owned a video equipment rental company.

Career Edit

The Ali brothers' first work was a 1984 documentary called Dealers in Death, which was directed by John McNaughton. Afterward, they offered McNaughton $100,000 to direct a horror film. Inspired by a 20/20 special regarding serial killer Henry Lee Lucas, McNaughton put together a movie loosely based on Lucas' actions entitled Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. The film was completed in 1986, but the Ali brothers were not particularly impressed with it, fearing that it would not generate sufficient revenue as a theatrically released feature. They held onto it until 1989, but the movie has since gone on to earn cult status among viewers. The movie even spawned a sequel in 1996, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Part 2, but McNaughton did not return to write and direct this installment, leaving that chore to noted "true crime" filmmaker Chuck Parello.
