As one of the most talented directors in Hollywood, JON TURTELTAUB (Director/ Producer) has been able to capture audiences'attention with his warm, funny, and emotional films. Turteltaub returns as director on NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS upon the success of the first film, which grossed an unexpected $350 million in box-office receipts worldwide. NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS continues the fantastical tale of treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin Gates (Cage) who reteams with a beautiful archivist (Kruger) to uncover the truth behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, which they believe lies within the 18 pages missing from assassin John Wilkes Booth's diary.

Always with an eye towards story, character and humor, Turteltaub has directed all eight of his studio feature films for The Walt Disney Company, including the 2000 hit "The Kid” starring Bruce Willis. Written by Audrey Wells, "The Kid” is the story of an egocentric man who is visited by himself as an 8-year-old. The movie also starred Emily Mortimer, Jean Smart and Lily Tomlin.

In 1999, Turteltaub directed the Touchstone Pictures' release "Instinct,” starring Anthony Hopkins, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Donald Sutherland and Maura Tierney. Prior to that, Turteltaub directed John Travolta, Robert Duvall, Forest Whitaker and Kyra Sedgwick in the blockbuster hit "Phenomenon,” which ranked as one of the highest-grossing films of 1996.

In 1993, he directed the surprise-hit comedy "Cool Runnings,” which was Disney's highestgrossing live-action film for the year. Two years later, he directed "While You Were Sleeping,” the breakout romantic comedy that helped launch Sandra Bullock to stardom. His first film for Disney was 1992's "3 Ninjas,” which, shockingly, was the studio's most profitable film of the year.

Based on these credits, it's clear that "surprise hit” is the trademark of Turteltaub's career. Jon's dream is that one day his successes won't be considered a surprise.

On the small screen, Turteltaub made his television-series producing and directing debut with the highly acclaimed CBS drama "Jericho,” which stars Skeet Ulrich. The primetime show centers around a nuclear explosion that plunges the residents of a small, peaceful Kansas town into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they are the only Americans left alive. "Jericho” will return for a second season in 2008.

Recently, Turteltaub and his production company, Junction Entertainment, entered into a multiyear overall arrangement with CBS Paramount Network TV to create, develop and produce drama, comedy and reality series for the studio.

In 1998, Turteltaub made an essential contribution to one of the most significant and critically acclaimed television miniseries in history, "From the Earth to the Moon.” The 10- part HBO dramatic series featured different stories surrounding the American expeditions to the moon. Turteltaub directed the seventh episode of the miniseries, entitled "That's All There Is,” which portrayed the camaraderie of the crew of Apollo 12. Turteltaub was nominated by the DGA for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television for his efforts, and the series received 10 Emmy® Awards and the Golden Globe® Award for Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Born in New York City and raised in Beverly Hills, Turteltaub got his BA at Wesleyan University in Connecticut and received his master's degree at the USC Film School. His father, Saul Turteltaub, is an iconic television producer with credits on such memorable shows as "Sanford & Son,” "What's Happening,” "That Girl” and "Love American Style.”

Turteltaub currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and newborn son.
