DREAMGIRLS

BILL CONDON (Director/Screenwriter) recently wrote and directed "Kinsey,” for which he won the 2005 Best Director Award from the British Directors Guild. An uncompromising portrait of one of the twentieth century's most influential and controversial figures, "Kinsey” also earned a Los Angeles Film Critics Best Actor Award for its star, Liam Neeson, as well as an Academy Award® nomination for Laura Linney as Best Supporting Actress.

Condon wrote and directed "Gods and Monsters,” which won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Feature and was named Best Picture of 1998 by the National Board of Review. The film, a poetic meditation on the final days of Frankenstein” director James Whale, earned Condon an Academy Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay and garnered nominations for its stars, Ian McKellen and Lynn Redgrave.

Bill Condon wrote the screenplay for the big-screen version of the musical "Chicago,” for which he received a second Oscar nomination. The film, which starred Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Richard Gere, won six Academy Awards®, including Best Picture in 2003.

Born in New York City, Condon attended Columbia University, where he graduated with a degree in Philosophy. An analytical piece he wrote for Millimeter magazine brought him to the attention of producer Michael Laughlin. Condon subsequently co-wrote the feature film "Strange Behavior” with Laughlin, who also directed the film. The movie became a cult hit, leading to the unofficial sequel, "Strange Invaders.” Condon made his directorial debut with "Sister, Sister,” which starred Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judith Ivey, and Eric Stoltz.

Condon currently serves on the board of Film Independent, as well as the recently formed Independent Writers Steering Committee of the WGA.
