Brett Ratner (born March 28, 1969) is an American film director, film producer, and music video director. He is known for directing the Rush Hour film series, The Family Man, Red Dragon, X-Men: The Last Stand, and Tower Heist. He was also a producer on the Fox drama series, Prison Break.

Biography

Ratner est né à Miami en Floride.

Diplômé de la Tisch School of the Arts de la New York University, son court-métrage, Whatever happened to Mason Reese, est son projet de thèse.

Son premier long-métrage est Argent comptant qui rencontre le succès au box-office américain. Le film est servi par Charlie Sheen et Chris Tucker dans une petite histoire d'arnaques et de diamants. Brett Ratner fait un retour très marqué avec Rush Hour qui est un véritable succès au box-office américain, récoltant plus de 250 millions de dollars.

En 2000, il réalise Family Man avec Nicolas Cage et Téa Leoni, une petite comédie de 60 000 000 $ qui ne rencontre pas le même succès que Rush Hour. L'année suivante il retrouve son duo culte pour reprendre les aventures dans Rush Hour 2 qui est encore une fois un succès public.

En 2002, il s'éloigne de la comédie en acceptant de conclure la trilogie de Hannibal Lecter, avec Anthony Hopkins, et Edward Norton, avec le thriller psychologique Dragon Rouge. Il s'agit de la deuxième adaptation cinématographique après Le Sixième Sens de Michael Mann. Le film est un succès commercial.

En 2004, il fait appel à Pierce Brosnan et Salma Hayek pour la comédie d'action Coup D'éclat, une histoire de diamants aux Bahamas.
Le film est un semi-succès au box-office.

En 2005, il est engagé pour conclure une autre trilogie. Il remplace Bryan Singer, engagé pour réaliser Superman Returns, pour prendre les commandes de X-Men : L'Affrontement final avec toujours la même distribution. Le réalisateur Matthew Vaughn avait d'abord été sollicité pour reprendre le flambeau, mais avait décliné. Le film est un très grand succès commercial au box-office rapportant plus de 450 millions de dollars.

En 2007, il revient à la comédie avec Rush Hour 3, dont l'action se passe à Paris, et qui n'est pas un gros succès. Puis en 2011, avec Le Casse de Central Park, où il dirige les stars Ben Stiller et Eddie Murphy, qui revient au genre après une longue absence.

En 2014, il propose une version modernisée du héros Hercule dans son film Hercules, avec Dwayne Johnson dans le rôle-titre.

Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) is the leader of a band of mercenaries comprising the spear-wielding prophet Amphiaraus (Ian McShane) of Argos, the knife-throwing thief Autolycus (Rufus Sewell) of Sparta, the feral warrior Tydeus (Aksel Hennie) of Thebes, the Amazon archer Atalanta (Ingrid Bolsø Berdal) of Scythia and his nephew storyteller Iolaus (Reece Ritchie) of Athens. Hercules is said to be the demigod son of Zeus, who completed the legendary Twelve Labors, only to be betrayed by Hera who drove him insane and caused him to murder his wife Megara (Irina Shayk) and their children during a visit to King Eurystheus (Joseph Fiennes). Throughout the film, it is not clearly established that Hercules is truly the son of Zeus, and many are skeptical of the claim as well as of the stories of Hercules' famous Twelve Labors. Despite this, Hercules is frequently seen displaying unusual strength and nigh-unmatched skill in combat. Hercules is frequently haunted by the memory of the deaths of his wife and daughters by his hand, as well as visions of Cerberus.
