CONFIDENCE

EDWARD BURNS continues to mesmerize audiences and critics alike as an actor, writer, director and producer. Burns "Sidewalks of New York" which was distributed by Paramount Classics in November 2001, was his fourth feature as a writer, director, producer, and star. The film is a comedic look at relationships and romance through the eyes of six New Yorkers; "Sidewalks" co-stars Burns, Heather Graham, Brittany Murphy, Rosario Dawson, David Krumholz, Dennis Farina and Stanley Tucci.

Burns was lauded by both critics and audiences for his first feature, "The Brothers McMullen," which premiered in competition at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival, winning the Grand Jury Prize. Burns wrote, directed and starred in the film, which was shot on a budget of only $25,000 and went on to gross over $10 million at the domestic box office, making it the most profitable film of 1995. The film also won "Best First Feature" at the 1996 Independent Spirit Awards.

As an actor, Burns recently starred in New Line's film "Fifteen Minutes" co-starring Robert De Niro. Burns also starred opposite Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan." The critically acclaimed World War II epic marked the first film in which Burns acted in a film he did not write and direct himself.

Edward Burns and brother Brian recently signed a deal with ATG (Artists Television Group) to write and produce for television.

In the last year Burns appeared in "Ash Wednesday," where he took on the roles of writer, director, producer and star. The film takes place in 1983 New York, and is a drama about two brothers trying to escape their past. In addition, he appeared opposite Angelina Jolie in the romantic comedy "Life, Or Something Like It," which was released by 20th Century Fox last April.

His upcoming project includes Peter Hyams "A Sound of Thunder," which is based on a short story by Ray Bradbury.
