Paul Anderson Biography
Born: March 04, 1965
Date of Birth: March 4, 1965
Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in Northern England, Anderson attended Warwick University where he achieved a first class film degree with honours and an MBA. He got started in film on his own, setting up a film cooperative in his hometown and worked on every aspect of film.
He then started to work for British television where he made award-winning documentaries and a controversial drama and was the principle writer on the successful contemporary crime series, El Cid.
The film based on the fighting videogame became a hit worldwide, despite the critic's poor reviews, and launched Anderson into the spotlight.
Lightening didn't strike twice, however, as his next sci-fi film, Event Horizon (1997) flopped at the box office.
He tried again with Solider (1998) but once again fell short.
