Screenwriter and director Stuart Beattie penned such blockbusters as "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003), and "G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (2009). Beattie even launched a one man campaign to try and get a big screen adaption of the "Halo" video game to the big screen, and while he wasn't successful, he did it purely for the passion of gaming and for the sheer wanting to create a movie millions of gamers have been dying to see. Beattie was born in 1972 in Australia. Beattie's father, David, was a solicitor, and his mother Sandra, was a prep school teacher at Knox Grammar who taught Latin and French. Beattie's first credits came in the films "Joey" (1997), and "The Protector" (1998), but his biggest break was just around the corner, thanks to a certain gang of pirates. "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003) was a big surprise smash for Disney, and the company wanted to build a franchise around its success. Beattie wrote the screen story for the first installment, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003), and he also created the characters for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (2006), "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" (2007), and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (2011). In addition, Beattie wrote the smash thriller "Collateral" (2004), starring Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx, directed by Michael Mann. Beattie also did some script work on the Baz Luhrmann film "Australia" (2008), an epic story of love during war-time in their native land. With all of his major Hollywood success, Beattie tried to single-handedly resurrect the movie version of "Halo," which had just been cancelled at Universal. Beattie wrote a script, and held meetings without rights to the property, and like many others he couldn't get it off the ground, but he did it because he loved the game and was dying to see a "Halo" movie himself. Not only did Beattie write some of the biggest box office hits in the United States, but he also wrote and directed "Tomorrow, When the War Began" (2010), which was a major hit in his native Australia. Beattie looked at screenwriting as a path to directing, and he went on to write and direct "I, Frankenstein" (2014), starring Aaron Eckhart, which he filmed in Melbourne, Australia.
