MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS

MARK WATERS (Director), a graduate of the directing program at the American Film Institute, made his feature film directorial debut with the dark comedy indie hit "The House of Yes.” The film premiered at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, where Parker Posey won a Special Jury Prize for her performance in the film.

Waters's next projects were the romantic comedy "Head Over Heels” and the VH1 original movie "Warning: Parental Advisory.” He then scored with the back-to-back hit comedies "Freaky Friday” and "Mean Girls.” "Freaky Friday,” starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan, earned a 2004 Critics' Choice Award nomination for Best Family Film and brought a Golden Globe Award nomination to Curtis. "Mean Girls,” written by Tina Fey, became one of the most talked-about films of the year and won three MTV Movie Awards, including one for Lindsay Lohan as Best Actress.

Waters followed in 2005 with the fantasy comedy romance "Just Like Heaven,” starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. In 2008 he directed the acclaimed family adventure "The Spiderwick Chronicles,” adapted from the popular book series.

Waters' latest film, "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past,” starring Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas, was released in May 2009. Waters served as a producer on "(500) Days of Summer,” which was nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards and two Golden Globes.
