Biography

Director Nick Hamm came to the movies somewhat late in his career, but it was worth the wait. The Belfast-born director studied in England before being appointed as director of the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1983. His tenure there helped transform the organization, as he focused on new plays by some of the era's best writers. From there, he was picked to work with some of Europe's most prestigious theaters, including being named Artistic Director of the Sadler's Wells Theatre Company. In 1989, he made his first venture into television with the arts documentary "The Bottom Line". He went on to direct a number of programs for the BBC, including 1991's "Out Of The Blue" with Colin Firth and Catherine Zeta-Jones. In 2001, he released "The Hole", his first venture into the horror genre. Based on a novel by Guy Burt, it was starlet Keira Knightley's first major role and was a hit in the UK but not theatrically released in the United States. 2004's "Godsend" with Robert De Niro followed. With his brother Jon, Hamm has also started a production company, Greenroom Entertainment Ltd, that debuted with the popular BBC Three sitcom "Off The Hook". In 2010, he both produced and directed "Killing Bono", a quirky film about a pair of Irish brothers in the 1980 music scene dealing with the influence of U2's global success.
