JOE CARNAHAN (Director/Screenwriter) is an American screenwriter and director. He
returned to the director's chair in 2007 with Smokin' Aces following his critically acclaimed cop drama
Narc, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2002 and earned him a Best Director
Independent Spirit Award nomination. Carnahan's first feature film was Blood, Guts, Bullets and
Octane, which he wrote, directed, and starred in. The film was self-financed and debuted at the Sundance
Film Festival in 1998.
Carnahan wrote and directed the innovative short Internet film The Hire: Ticker, produced by
Ridley Scott, starring Clive Owen, Don Cheadle, Ray Liotta and F. Murray Abraham for BMW in 2002.
Carnahan co-wrote the feature film Pride and Glory, a police drama released by Warner Bros. last year,
starring Colin Farrell and Edward Norton, as well as adaptations of Mark Bowden's Killing Pablo and
James Ellroy's White Jazz, both of which he is set to direct.
