Joe Carnahan
While working as a TV trailer-cutter in his hometown of Sacramento, Joe Carnahan wrote and directed BLOOD, GUTS, BULLETS & OCTANE. Shot on weekends and edited at night, the movie was made for $7300. Since Carnahan could not afford actors, he also starred in the movie along with a group of his friends. BLOOD, GUTS premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to the Berlin Film Festival and a domestic release through Lion?s Gate Films. Carnahan, who had been writing scripts since his teens, quickly found work with Warner Bros., adapting the novel SURRENDER OF WASHINGTON HANSEN and the original screenplay MIAMI.

He then directed the independent cop thriller, NARC, from his own screenplay, starring Ray Liotta and Jason Patric. NARC premiered in competition at Sundance, where its gritty and kinetic intensity drew a rave response. The movie subsequently drew the attention of Tom Cruise, who encouraged Paramount Pictures to acquire the film. Carnahan is currently developing projects at Paramount, Working Title Films and Universal, and is set to direct WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES in starring Harrison Ford.
