NON-STOP

JAUME COLLET-SERRA (Directed by) was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1974. In the early 1990s, Collet-Serra moved from Barcelona to Los Angeles to attend film school at Columbia College Hollywood. Soon after graduating, he began his career as an editor.

From there, Collet-Serra moved into directing music videos, then commercials for the global brands PlayStation, Budweiser, MasterCard, Miller Lite, Pontiac, Smirnoff Ice, Renault, Verizon and 7UP, working with such agencies as McCann Erickson, J. Walter Thompson (JWT), BBDO and TBWA\CHIAT\DAY. Collet-Serra's stylized, surreal and often dark imagery quickly caught the eye of producer Joel Silver, who hired him to direct 2005's House of Wax.

In 2007, Collet-Serra's love for soccer took him back to Spain to shoot Goal II: Living the Dream. He collaborated with Silver again for both the horror film Orphan, which grossed $76 million, and the Liam Neeson thriller Unknown, which grossed $130 million. Currently, Collet-Serra is in active development on the remake of the cult classic Akira, with Appian Way for Warner Bros. Pictures, and in postproduction on Run All Night, starring Neeson, Ed Harris and Joel Kinnaman.

In addition to directing, Collet-Serra produces films with Juan Solá through their production company, Ombra Films. Among Ombra's recent projects are Mindscape, with Studiocanal; Curve, with Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures; and Eden, with Voltage Pictures. Ombra's next production will start principal photography in February in Budapest.
