John Woo
John Woo's illustrious career as a filmmaker began in Hong Kong where he spent over two decades at the center of a thriving film industry, directing over twenty-six feature films. He was known primarily as a comedy specialist until the mid-1980s before creating a series of inspired romantic and violent gangster dramas that broke box-office records. In 1983, Woo began a successful partnership with directing actor Chow Yun Fat. Woo?s lush crime thrillers put him into film history books around the world; the most famous include THE KILLER (1989), HARD-BOILED (1991) and BULLET IN THE HEAD (1990). Woo?s style was quickly embraced by Hollywood. FACE/OFF (1997) was praised as a masterpiece by critics around the world. Woo then directed Tom Cruise in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II, which grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. John Woo and his producing partner Terence Chang now create through their company LION ROCK PRODUCTIONS. Woo lives in California with his wife and three children and he reads every fan letter himself.
