CASINO ROYALE

MARTIN CAMPBELL returns to direct his second James Bond film, CASINO ROYALE. In 1995, he directed the hit GoldenEye, successfully introducing Pierce Brosnan to the role of 007. Born in New Zealand, Campbell moved to London, where he began his career as a cameraman. He went on to produce the controversial British feature film Scum, as well as Black Joy, which was selected for competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Campbell made his directorial debut on British television on the police action series "The Professionals” and continued with two more popular BBC series, "Shoestring” and "Minder.”

Considered one of the U.K.'s top directors by the mid-1980s, he directed the highly praised British television film "Reilly: Ace of Spies.” "Edge of Darkness,” a five-hour miniseries directed for the BBC, about nuclear contamination in England depicting murder and high-ranking corruption, won six BAFTA Awards.

Campbell's first Hollywood movie was Criminal Law, and he went on to direct Defenseless and No Escape. His American television credits include directing HBO's "Cast a Deadly Spell” and two episodes of NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street.” Following GoldenEye, he directed the international blockbuster The Mask of Zorro starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas, which earned Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominations; Vertical Limit; Beyond Borders; and, most recently, The Legend of Zorro, again starring Zeta-Jones and Banderas.
