Filmmaker NEIL BURGER (Director) most recently directed the 2011 hit Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller that opened number one at the box office. The film starred Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, and grossed over $160 million worldwide.

Previously, Burger wrote and directed the critically acclaimed The Illusionist, starring Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel, basing his screenplay on the short story "Eisenheim the Illusionist" by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Steven Millhauser. He made his directorial feature debut with Interview with the Assassin in 2002, which he also wrote, winning the Best Feature Film category at both the Woodstock Film Festival and Avignon Film Festival, and receiving nominations for three Independent Spirit Awards including Best First Film and Best First Screenplay. Burger also wrote and directed The Lucky Ones, starring Rachel McAdams and Tim Robbins.

Before the transition to feature films, Burger directed commercials for companies such as Mastercard, IBM and ESPN. He created a series of television spots for Amnesty International and their campaign for "prisoners of conscience." Burger also created and directed the award-winning campaign "Books: Feed Your Head" for MTV, which promoted language and literature.

A graduate of Yale with a degree in fine arts, Burger currently resides in New York City with his family.
