Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Before Biting Elbows: Bad Motherfucker (2013), we were working for about 2 years on a very calm psychological spy thriller set during the Cold War. When Timur [producer Timur Bekmambetov] offered me the chance to do this [Hardcore Henry (2015)], I had to think it over a lot. I didn't think my first film would be a crazy action movie, but it turned out to be and I'm very glad that it did. [2014] See more »
