THE EXPRESS

From the tick-tock suspense of a courtroom drama to the breathlessness of a psychological thriller, director GARY FLEDER (Directed by) consistently keeps audiences on the edge of their seats. Fleder has made his mark as a craftsman of thrillers, with expertise ranging from crime and action dramas to science fiction and dark comedies.

Fleder's feature film career began on the opposite side of the law, with the blackly comic Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, produced by Miramax Films in 1995. The film, which starred Andy Garcia as the leader of a group of criminals with a price on their heads, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and garnered Fleder two awards from the Cognac Festival du Film Policier.

Since then, Fleder has honed his skills and kept audiences mesmerized with thrillers such as Kiss the Girls (1997), starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman; Don't Say a Word (2001), which introduced Brittany Murphy to a wider audience, and starred Michael Douglas; Impostor (2001), a sci-fi thriller based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, starring Gary Sinise, Madeleine Stowe and Vincent D'Onofrio; and Runaway Jury (2003), starring John Cusack and Academy Award® winners Rachel Weisz, Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman.

Fleder also directed D'Onofrio in a Peabody Award-winning performance in the 1996 "Subway” episode of Homicide: Life on the Street, and collaborated with producer Tom Hanks to direct an episode of the Emmy Award-winning miniseries, From the Earth to the Moon.

Fleder's career as a television director began in 1993, with an award-winning episode of Tales from the Crypt. Since then, he has directed pilots and key episodes of several dramas, including L.A. Doctors, Blind Justice and, most recently, October Road and Life on Mars for ABC.

A graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Fleder is a member of the Directors Guild's Special Projects Committee. He was born in Norfolk, Virginia.
