Biography

Neil Marshall built his reputation as one of the bleeding edge filmmakers of the aptly named Splat Pack movement. Born in 1970, in Newcastle upon Tyne, Marshall began making films as a youth armed with only a Super 8 camera. After formal training at Newcastle Polytechnic, Marshall worked as a film editor, occasionally dabbling in screenwriting on projects, including director Bharat Nalluri's debut feature, "Killing Time" (1998). Marshall transitioned into directing with his first feature film, 2002's "Dog Soldiers," earning numerous critical plaudits and awards. Marshall, who's staked his reputation as a director with grotesque imagery and ultra-violent subject matter, earned high praise for the more psychologically-oriented thriller "The Descent" (2005) and the post-apocalyptic film "Doomsday" (2008). With his reputation as a director growing in the U.K. and abroad, Marshall directed the action-oriented historical drama "Centurion" in 2010.

Bonus Trivia

.

Marshall started making home movies with a Super 8 camera when he was a very young boy growing up in England.

.

"I think I’d like to do a big movie with a strong female lead, whether or not she would be a superhero. I’m more interested in characters like Scarlett Johansson in Lucy. I’m less interested in people with superpowers because I can’t identify with them. Very rarely do they get killed off, and when they do get killed off, chances are they’re going to be back . . . somehow. Yes, I’d love to do a big splashy movie with a great female lead, but it has to be someone I can believe in." - from Vanity Fair, August 21, 2014
