Judging from his “Die Hard,” “Matrix,” and “Lethal Weapon” franchises, producer Joel Silver knows how to put together successful sequels. But that’s not exactly correct in the real estate world.

Last year, he sold his Malibu estate for $38 million, after having originally listed it in 2017 for $57.5 million.

Now, he’s looking for a blockbuster in Brentwood.

Silver has listed his 26,000-square-foot modernist home in the Westside neighborhood for $77.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The striking home is the work of late Mexican modernist architect Ricardo Legorreta, who died in 2011. Its most distinct features include its circular atrium, the pyramid ceiling above its dining room, and a family room with 30-foot-high ceilings and hydraulic doors.

The property spans five acres that include an English garden, a sunken basketball court, and a pool. There are several outdoor areas meant to be used as individual living spaces, according to the Times.

Silver has enlisted Judy Feder with Hilton & Hyland and Kurt Rappaport with the Westside Estate Agency to sell the property. Feder was also the listing agent for Silver’s Malibu beach house that sold last year.

Silver was also involved in a Venice office property that sold in May for $22 million. He purchased the property in 2012 and started a renovation to make it the headquarters of a new production company, but the plan encountered community resistance and slowed. [LAT]Dennis Lynch
