Biography

Daniel Minahan first broke into feature films as the co-author (with director Mary Harron) of "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996), a loose biopic of Valerie Solanas whose major claim to fame was her assassination attempt of the famed artist. He solidified his standing though, with "Series 7" (2001), a dead-on satire of "reality" television he wrote and directed that revolved around a selected group of contestants who literally have to kill one another to survive.
