ABOUT THE CREW: DAN BRADLEY (Director) is a second-unit director and stunt coordinator-turned-director. Included among his long list of film credits for action design are: "The Bourne Supremacy," "The Bourne Ultimatum" and "Quantum of Solace". He has worked on “Independence Day,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Spider-Man 3,” “Superman Returns,” “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,“ and “Where The Wild Things Are”. Bradley served as the stunt coordinator and second unit for the car chase scenes in “The Dukes of Hazzard” film. Johnny Knoxville praised him saying, "everyone in Hollywood wants Dan Bradley to shoot their car stuff," and cited him as a factor in Knoxville taking a leading role in the film. Bradley was born in Burbank and grew up in Reseda in the San Fernando Valley. He attended Cal State Northridge Film School, though he never graduated. As a youngster Bradley wasn't into sports at all; he was scuba diving by the age of thirteen. He was also a member of the Sierra Club and learned how to repel and climb tricky and technical rock faces before the age of sixteen. His father was a community theater director, and he has five brothers who all learned how to stage fight by the age of seven. Bradley and his brothers would ‘stage fight’ on their front lawn. It was realistic enough that people would stop their cars to break it up. Many of those daredevil activities that Bradley concentrated on as a kid translated into his film career. Bradley will next be directing the supernatural action feature “Hellified” for Paramount Pictures. It’s based on an Andy Burg penned script that details a supernatural action-adventure journey into the depths of hell. CARL ELLSWORTH (Screenwriter), a native of Louisville, Kentucky, wrote the screenplay for DreamWorks’ film “Red Eye,” directed by Wes Craven. He also co-wrote D.J. Caruso’s hit thriller “Disturbia,” starring Shia LaBeouf before re-teaming with Wes Craven and producer Marianne Maddalena to co-write the script for “The Last House on the Left,” the 2009 remake of Craven’s horror cult classic. Ellsworth’s television writing credits include episodes of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Xena: Warrior Princess.” He has also written forthcoming episodes of the computer-animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” for executive producer George Lucas. Ellsworth is currently working on “The Apparition,” a modern haunted house thriller for Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment as well as re-writing the upcoming thriller “C.O.D.” for Paramount Pictures. MITCHELL AMUNDSEN (Director of Photography) most recently shot the blockbuster “G.I. Joe” starring Dennis Quaid and Channing Tatum, “Transformers” starring Shia LaBeouf, Luc Besson’s “Transporter II” starring Jason Statham and Alessandro Gassman, “Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour,” shot in Disney Digital 3D, “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience” and “Wanted” starring Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman. Amundsen was recently one of a select group of top cinematographers asked to shoot concert footage for Martin Scorsese’s documentary on the Rolling Stones, “Shine a Light,” during the band’s ‘A Bigger Band’ tour. The distinguished group of cinematographers included Stuart Dryburgh, Robert Elswit, Tony C. Jannelli, Ellen Kuras, Andres Lensie, Emmanuel Lubezki, Albert Maysles, Anastas N. Michos, Declan Quinn and Robert Richardson. Amundsen made the jump to cinematography after working for over 15 years to become one of the leading camera operators in motion pictures, television, commercials and videos. Some of his credits as the director of photography for second unit include: “Mission: Impossible III,” “Eight Below,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “The Island,” “National Treasure,” “The Bourne Supremacy,” “Seabiscuit,” “Bad Boys 2,” “Pearl Harbor,” and “Edtv,” to name but a few. KIRK FRANCIS (Production Sound Mixer) has been specializing in motion picture sound since 1969. He has mixed production sound for over 60 feature films worldwide including: “Bull Durham,” “Under Fire,” “Mr. Holland’s Opus,” “Sleepless in Seattle” and “Tin Cup”. He won the 2008 Academy Award and two BAFTA awards for “The Bourne Ultimatum” and he was nominated for an Academy Award in 1998 for “L.A. Confidential”. He has received three Cinema Audio Society Award nominations for his work on “L.A. Confidential,” “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum”. Francis was born is 1947 in Oakland, California and his favorite recreational activities include falconry, fly casting and the Hawaiian steel guitar.

Among her television credits are “North Shore,” South Beach” and “CSI.” She had a recurring role as “Super Girl” on “Smallville,” and continues to appear in a recurring role on “Supernatural.” Palicki loves to paint and collects and reads comic books.

CONNOR CRUISE (Daryl Jenkins) is known as a DJ that mixes an electric mix of artists and musical genres including Amy Winehouse, Drake, Whitney Houston, Lykke Li and Avicii.

Cruise has deejayed at celebrity-packed events such as the 2012 Comic Con IGN Party for Resident Evil 6; 2012 Children Mending Hearts Spring Benefit; XBOX Miracle Of Music Benefit in honor of the 2011 American Music Awards; Nickelodeon’s 2011 Teen Nick HALO Awards; People Magazine’s SAG Awards After Party; Direct TV’s 2012 Beach Bowl After Party at the XLVI Superbowl; and the Hard Rock Hotel’s 2012 Coachella party.

Cruise made his acting debut in SEVEN POUNDS opposite Will Smith, Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson. WILL YUN LEE (Captain Cho), one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People,” is an emerging talent on the big and small screens. He is an actor with an unusual depth that sets him apart from other rising young Asian American actors. This summer, Lee can be seen as Mazarin in the ABC Family television show “Fallen,” co-starring Bryan Cranston and Paul Wesley. Adding to his television credits, Lee most recently starred in the NBC drama “Bionic Woman” as specialized operations leader Jae Kim. “Bionic Woman” is a re-imagination of the classic from David Eick (“Battlestar Galactica”) and Jason Smilovic (“Kidnapped”). Recent television credits include the FX series “Thief”. On the big screen, Lee starred opposite Jennifer Garner in the 20th Century Fox film “Elektra”. Lee also starred in the independent film “Face,” directed by Bertha Bay-Sa Pan, which premiered in the dramatic competition at Sundance. He is well known for his role as Jimmy Nguyen in the critically acclaimed “What’s Cooking” which opened the festival in 2000. Other film credits include Warner Bros’ “Torque” and MGM’s ‘007’ adventure “Die Another Day”. On the small screen he is well known for his portrayal of Danny Woo on TNT’s “Witchblade”. He co-starred in the series opposite Yancy Butler for its two seasons. Born in Arlington, Virginia to parents who had recently emigrated from Korea, Lee’s character was nourished both by the traditional values of his family and the decidedly unspiritual socio-economic climate of the 80’s. He was raised by both immediate and extended family and moved often, exposed to life on the tough Bronx streets and idyllic Hawaiian beaches. By his teens he was living in the San Francisco area with his father, a Korean Tae Kwan Do grand master. Lee also became an accomplished martial artist, and won an athletic scholarship to the University of California at Berkley. While in school, Lee worked at East Bay Asian Youth Center, teaching high-risk teens from ghetto neighborhoods, not unlike those he had known as a child in the Bronx. It was there that his ongoing commitment to young people began, and continues to play an important role in his life today. It was also at this time that he became seriously interested in acting. After landing a role in “Nash Bridges,” he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career. Guest starring roles in series such as “Profiler” and “Brimstone” led to a role in the TV movie “The Disciples” for UPN, and soon after to “What’s Cooking” and “Witchblade”. At home in Los Angeles, Lee continues to teach martial arts and study acting, drawn to them both because “neither can ever be completely mastered”. Copyright © 2012 FilmDistrict.
