CLOVERFIELD

MATT REEVES (Director) came to prominence as one of the creators of the popular television series "Felicity” starring Keri Russell. He served as executive producer and frequent director during the show's four season run, which began on the WB in 1998. Reeves' partner on that groundbreaking series was writer-director- producer J.J. Abrams, with whom he continues to collaborate. "Cloverfield” marks their latest project together.

Reeves made his feature directorial debut with Miramax's 1996 dark comedy "The Pallbearer” starring Gwyneth Paltrow, David Schwimmer and Barbara Hershey. He developed the screenplay with co-writer Jason Katims through Robert Redford's Sundance Institute.

In 1999, he co-wrote and co-produced James Gray's critically acclaimed feature "The Yards” starring Mark Wahlberg, Joaquin Phoenix and Charlize Theron.

Reeves first gained the attention of the industry with his award-winning student short "Mr. Petrified Forrest,” (produced by Bryan Burk) upon graduating from USC's prestigious film school. He got his start in 1995 when a screenplay he penned in college, with classmate Richard Hatem, was purchased by Warner Bros. and later turned into "Under Siege 2: Dark Territory”.

For the small screen, in addition to the pilot for "Felicity,” Reeves helmed the pilot episodes of "Gideon's Crossing” and "Miracles” for ABC, "Conviction” for NBC, as well as series episodes of "Homicide: Life on the Street” and "Relativity.”

His upcoming projects include writing and directing the independent drama/thriller "The Invisible Woman,” which he is producing along with Abrams for Gotham-based Greenestreet Films.

Reeves currently lives with his girlfriend in Los Angeles.
