Christophe Gans (born 11 March 1960) is a French film director, producer and screenwriter, who specializes in horror and fantasy movies.

Life and career

Gans was born in Antibes, France. As a teenager, he spent a large portion of his time creating kung fu-themed Super 8 movies with his friends. He later went on to attend the French film school Idhec, where he created his first short film, Silver Slime, dedicated to Mario Bava. He later spent time as a film critic before co-directing his first film, H.P. Lovecraft's: Necronomicon.

His $29 million-budgeted film Brotherhood of the Wolf was a worldwide success, grossing over $70 million [1] in theaters worldwide. It became the sixth-highest-grossing French-language film of all time in the United States,[2][3] After the film's success, many producers approached Gans to work on very similar projects to appeal to young audience.[4]

He went on to direct 2006's cinematic adaptation of the video game Silent Hill, as well as the 2014 fantasy film, Beauty and the Beast. Gans has also appeared in films as an actor, as he portrayed himself in the 2016 mockumentary Fury of the Demon.

Future projects

Gans was to write and direct the Capcom video game Onimusha; however, after several setbacks he abandoned it and is now attached to the French film Fantômas.[5][6] He initially was to direct a sequel to Silent Hill, but later pulled out and was replaced by M. J. Bassett.[7] Gans was developing a new live action Corto Maltese film for release in 2020. It was to star Tom Hughes and Milla Jovovich.[8] However, it was cancelled due to legal problems.[9] In January 2020, Gans expressed an interest in directing new Silent Hill and Fatal Frame films, stating that he is developing a screenplay for the former.[10]
