JAMES DeMONACO (Written and Directed by) began writing screenplays and directing short films at age 11. After a very brief stint at the NYU film school, DeMonaco wrote several feature films including The Negotiator, which starred Kevin Spacey and Samuel L. Jackson, and the remake of Assault on Precinct 13, which starred Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne. He has written and produced several television miniseries including Spike TV's critically acclaimed nine-hour thriller The Kill Point, which starred John Leguizamo.

In 2009, DeMonaco made his directorial debut with Staten Island, New York, an independent film he wrote, which was produced by Luc Besson and Sebastien K. Lemercier and starred Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio and Seymour Cassel. In his sophomore directing effort, The Purge reunites DeMonaco with both Lemercier and Hawke.

In his spare time, DeMonaco remains an avid fan of the New York Yankees.
