Cédric Nicolas-Troyan est un réalisateur de films et publicités et superviseur des effets spéciaux français né le 9 mars 1969 à Talence en Gironde.

Biography

Cédric Nicolas nait à Talence, dans le département de la Gironde en mars 1969.

Il débute sa carrière cinématographique dans les années 1990 en travaillant sur les effets spéciaux de plusieurs films français, comme Assassin(s), Paparazzi ou encore Cuisine américaine. Il s'exporte ensuite aux États-Unis où il travaille sur deux films sortis en 2002 : Photo Obsession de de Mark Romanek et Le Cercle de Gore Verbinski. Il retrouvera à plusieurs reprises Gore Verbinski : Pirates des Caraïbes : La Malédiction du Black Pearl (2003), The Weather Man (2005), Pirates des Caraïbes : Le Secret du coffre maudit (2006).

En plus des effets spéciaux, il officie comme réalisateur de la seconde équipe sur Blanche-Neige et le Chasseur de Rupert Sanders, sorti en 2012. Il occupe à nouveau ce poste pour Maléfique (2014).

En 2013, il est annoncé que Summit Entertainment l'a choisi pour mettre en scène le remake de Highlander de Russell Mulcahy, sorti en 1986. Il déclare à ce propos :


« Le premier film est sorti en France quand j'étais ado, et c'était un de mes films préférés à l'époque. J'adorais aussi la série, qui a été tournée en partie en France, du côté de la Seine. Ma première réaction a été, comme tout le monde : “A-t-on besoin d'un remake ?” (...) Puis j'ai commencé à réfléchir à l'idée de reprendre ces super personnages d'une manière moderne, viscérale (...) Ce film repose sur un concept qui traverse les genres, avec des éléments de western, voyage dans le temps, fantastique, action, scènes contemporaines... »

Finalement, il réalise Le Chasseur et la Reine des Glaces, la suite de Blanche-Neige et le Chasseur (2012) de Rupert Sanders, alors que Frank Darabont était initialement annoncé.


Vie privée
Il est marié à Sue Troyan depuis juillet 2002. Ils ont eu un enfant ensemble.

Il y a fort longtemps, bien avant qu’elle ne tombe sous l’épée de Blanche-Neige, la Reine Ravenna, la méchante belle-mère de Blanche-Neige, avait dû assister, sans mot dire, à la trahison amoureuse qui avait contraint sa sœur Freya, la Reine de Glaces, à quitter leur royaume, le cœur brisé. Celle que l’on appelait Freya, la jeune reine des glaces, à cause de son habilité à geler n’importe quel adversaire, s’employa alors à lever une armée de guerriers impitoyables, au fond d’un palais glacé.
