Screenwriter-director David Twohy contributed or oversaw a string of gritty and popular science fiction and action films in the late '90s and early 2000s, including "The Fugitive" (1993), "Pitch Black" (2000) and its two film sequels, "The Chronicles of Riddick" (2004) and "Riddick" (2013). He began his career in low-budget film, writing the cult favorite "Warlock" (1989) before making his debut as director on the well regarded but largely unseen "Timescape" (1992). After co-authoring the script to the box office hit "The Fugitive," Twohy moved between writing and directorial duties, scoring a hit with "G.I. Jane" (1997) but brickbats for "Terminal Velocity" (1994) and "Waterworld" (1995). In 2000, he wrote "Pitch Black," a tough, suspenseful sci-fi/action hybrid starring actor Vin Diesel as an intergalactic antihero. Its success in the home video market spawned an epic-sized sequel, "The Chronicles of Riddick" (2004), which also found its audience on DVD. Twohy and Diesel spent the next eight years crafting a third film, "Riddick" (2013), which became a sizable hit and underscored Twohy's knack for engineering crowd-pleasing, high-grossing genre films.
