PETER WEBBER (Director) is a British director best known for his feature films GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING and HANNIBAL RISING. GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth, marked Webber's feature film debut. The film has received numerous accolades, including 3 Academy Award ┬«nominations, 2 Golden Globe nominations, and 10 BAFTA Award nominations.
Dino De Laurentiis tapped Webber to direct HANNIBAL RISING. Based on Thomas Harris' book of the same name, and starring Gaspard Ulliel, Gong Li and Rhys Ifans, this prequel depicts a young Hannibal Lecter as he gradually becomes a serial killer. The film has now garnered a cult status.
Webber made his first short film, THE ZEBRA MAN, about sideshow performer Horace Ridler starring Minnie Driver. He directed Simon Russell Beale as Franz Schubert and explored the counter- culture of tunnel-dwelling road protesters in UNDERGROUND. His 2001 Channel 4 mini-series MEN ONLY stirred controversy for its frank and shocking portrayal of the dark side of male sexuality. It is notable for giving early leads to Stephen Moyer of TRUE BLOOD and Martin Freeman of THE HOBBIT.
