ONE NIGHT AT MCCOOL'S

HARALD ZWART makes his feature film directorial debut with One Night at McCool's.

Born in the Netherlands and raised in Norway, he started his career making short films at the age of eight. He was later accepted to the prestigious Dutch Film Academy in Amsterdam. His graduate film, "Gabriel's Surprise," was greeted with acclaim — and, unusual for a film school project, was bought to air on Scandinavian television.

Zwart went on to direct numerous award-winning commercials, first in Norway and then in the United Kingdom, France. Germany. and finally in the United States. He also helmed several music videos.

In 1997, he directed the four-part miniseries "Commander Hamilton," starring Peter Stormare, Lena Olin, and Mark Hamill. Based on the work of Scandinavia's biggest-selling novelist, Jan Guillou, the miniseries was also released theatrically in an edited, feature-length version and went on to become the highest-grossing movie that year in Scandinavia.

In 1999, Daily Variety selected Zwart as one of its "Ten Directors to Watch."

Zwart is currently attached to direct "Supernatural Law," the live-action film version of Batton Lash's comic-book series "Wolff& Byrd," for Universal Pictures.
