Biography

English director whose background in music videos and commercials served him well in Hollywood action films. After beginning as an album cover designer, Hopkins became a storyboard artist for Russell Mulcahy, then a director of videos. He next advanced to the position of set designer on Mulcahy's videos. A few years later, Hopkins began working as a video and commercial director. He later relocated to Australia where he reunited with Mulcahy, serving as second unit director on action sequences in the sci-fi cult hit "Highlander" (1986). This led to Hopkins's own directorial debut, "Dangerous Game" (1988).
