WATCHMEN

ZACK SNYDER (Director) is the acclaimed director and co-writer of the blockbuster action drama "300.” The film, based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller and starring Gerard Butler and Lena Headey, was a worldwide hit in 2007, and earned Snyder praise for his groundbreaking blend of live action and computer-generated imagery.

Together with his wife and producing partner, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder formed Cruel and Unusual Films, of which he is co-president. The production company recently signed a two-year overall production deal with Warner Bros. Pictures. In addition to the upcoming adaptation of "Watchmen,” Cruel and Unusual Films' projects include the drama "The Last Photograph,” to be directed by Sergei Bodro; the fantasy adventure "Sucker Punch,” co-written by Snyder; and the animated film "The Guardians of Ga'Hoole.” The company is also developing a feature film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic "The Illustrated Man,” which Snyder will direct, and also produce alongside Denise Di Novi, Deborah Snyder and Frank Darabont in collaboration with Di Novi Pictures. Other films in development to be produced by Cruel and Unusual Films include the zombie film "Army of the Dead” and the apocalyptic thriller "Cobalt 60.” Continuing his dedication to groundbreaking film, Snyder provided the original stories for "Sucker Punch,” "Army of the Dead” and "The Last Photograph.”

Zack Snyder made his feature film directorial debut with the 2004 horror thriller "Dawn of the Dead,” which topped the box office its opening weekend in 2004. The film brought Snyder widespread acclaim from critics and audiences, who praised his inspired re-imagining of George Romero's cult classic. "Dawn of the Dead” was also nominated for the prestigious Camera d'Or Prize at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

Snyder's feature film success follows years as an award-winning and respected director in the commercial and music video arenas. His commercials have garnered numerous awards, including two Clios, as well as a Gold Lion Award at Cannes for his Jeep "Frisbee” spot. Britain's Communication Arts Magazine featured Snyder as one of the most talented commercial directors in that country, and the London advertising community presented him with an award for his impressive body of work.

Snyder attributes his distinctive style, in part, to his early artistic training in London, where he studied painting at the Heatherleys School. He later refined his artistic sensibilities at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, where he developed the bold, cinematic style of filmmaking for which he is known today.
