THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO
KEVIN REYNOLDS (Director) was born in San Antonio, Texas. After
graduating from Baylor University with a law degree, he wrote speeches for the
then Governor of Texas. After a few years he opted to pursue a career in
filmmaking, enrolling first in the film school at the University of Texas in
Austin and then at the University of Southern California's film school. His
writing thesis "Ten Soldiers" was later directed by John Milius and
released under the title "Red Dawn." Steven Spielberg saw his film
thesis "Proof" and asked him to write a feature length screenplay
around its premise. This film, "Fandango," became Reynolds's first
foray into feature film directing and his first collaboration with Kevin Costner.
Reynolds and Costner went on to work on "Robin Hood: Prince of
Thieves," "Rapa Nui," and "Waterworld." "The Beast
of War," Reynolds's second film, has long been his favorite. He is also
the director of "187," starring Samuel L. Jackson.
