Michael Mann

Powered by imdb

A student of London's International Film School, Michael Mann began his career in the late 70s, writing for TV shows like Starsky and Hutch. He directed his first film, the award-winning prison drama The Jericho Mile, in 1979. He followed that in 1981 with his first theatrical release, Thief starring James Caan as a safe-cracker who falls under the spell of the mob. He followed with The Keep, an adaptation of F. Paul Wilson's novel about a mysterious force within a Nazi fortress. He hit it big in 1984, when he produced and created the long-running TV series Miami Vice, which made Don Johnson a household name. He followed that up in 1986 with the underrated, lesser-known TV series, Crime Story, and the thriller Manhunter a precursor of The Silence of the Lambs. He spent the next few years involved in television, directing films like L.A. Takedown and producing films like the Emmy-winning Drug Wars: The Camarena Story. In 1992, he returned to feature film with the box-office hit The Last of the Mohicans, which starred Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe.  See full bio on IMDb »
