EDGE OF DARKNESS

MARTIN CAMPBELL (Director) most recently directed the James Bond adventure "Casino Royale,” a critical tour de force and box-office smash that successfully introduced Daniel Craig in the role of Bond. Prior to that, he re-teamed with Antonio Banderas on "The Legend of Zorro,” the sequel to their 1998 hit "The Mask of Zorro,” which starred Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones and earned Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominations.

A native of New Zealand, Campbell began his career in London as a cameraman for Lew Grade's ATV company. He went on to produce the controversial British feature "Scum” as well as "Black Joy,” which was selected for competition at the Cannes Film Festival. He made his directorial debut on the British police action series "The Professionals,” and continued with the popular BBC series "Shoestring” and Thames TV's "Minder.” Considered one of the UK's top directors by the mid 1980s, he helmed the highly praised British telefilm "Reilly: Ace of Spies” as well as "Edge of Darkness,” a critically acclaimed BBC miniseries that won six BAFTA Awards, including a Best Series win for Campbell, and inspired the feature film.

Campbell's first Hollywood movie was "Criminal Law.” He went on to direct "Defenseless” and "No Escape” and, in 1995, directed Pierce Brosnan in his first outing as famed British spy James Bond in "GoldenEye.” Campbell was credited with rejuvenating the franchise and the movie grossed more than $350 million worldwide. In 2000, he directed and produced the mountaineering action adventure "Vertical Limit,” which was critically well received and earned over $200 million worldwide.

Some of Campbell's additional American credits include HBO's "Cast a Deadly Spell” and two episodes of NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street.” He also directed the epic romance "Beyond Borders,” starring Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen.

Campbell's upcoming film projects include the crime drama "36” and the action film "Green Lantern.”
