Joel Schumacher

Director

Born - 29 September 1939, New York City, USA
Died - 22 June 2020

Very tall, thin-lipped, studious-looking, almost cadaverous American director with an enviable string of mainstream hits on his film CV. Beginning in the industry as a costume designer, he was soon turning his talents towards directing, beginning with the TV gangster movie Virginia Hill (1974), which he also wrote. After more TV work, he entered movies with The Incredible Shrinking Woman (1981), but really hit his stride after the success of St Elmo's Fire four years later. Further film work includes The Lost Boys (1987), Cousins (1989), Flatliners (1990), Dying Young (1991), Falling Down (1993), The Client (1994), Batman Forever (1995), A Time to Kill (1996), Batman & Robin (1997), 8 MM (1999), Tigerland (2000), Phone Booth (2002), Veronica Guerin (2003), The Phantom of the Opera (2004), The Number 23 (2007), Blood Creek (2009) and Trespass (2011), his last. He died from cancer.
