Biography

David Leitch débute sa carrière de cascadeur au milieu des années 1990 dans des séries télévisées comme Sept à la maison, Ally McBeal ou encore Buffy contre les vampires. Il fait ses débuts au cinéma dans la comédie Capitaine Orgazmo (1997) et travaille ensuite sur un film au budget plus conséquent, Blade (1998). À la fin des années 1990 jusqu'au milieu des années 2000, il est notamment la doublure de Brad Pitt sur plusieurs films (Fight Club, Le Mexicain, Spy Game : Jeu d'espions, Ocean's Eleven, Troie, Mr. et Mrs. Smith) et de Jean-Claude Van Damme (Replicant, The Order).

En parallèle à son métier de cascadeur, il devient peu à peu coordinateur des cascades au début des années 2000 sur des films comme The Score (2001). Il évolue également parfois comme chorégraphe de scènes de combat comme pour Shérif, fais-moi peur (2005). Il décroche également des rôles mineurs dans des films où il officie aux cascades comme Ocean's Eleven, V pour Vendetta, Ninja Assassin, Le Flingueur ou encore Jason Bourne : L'Héritage.

Dès 2003, il développe son activité en devenant réalisateur de la seconde équipe, d'abord sur In Hell (2003) de Ringo Lam, puis sur des films aux budgets conséquents comme Le Flingueur (2011), Hansel et Gretel : Witch Hunters (2013), Wolverine : Le Combat de l'immortel (2013), Ninja Turtles (2014), etc. Il se lance ensuite un nouveau défi : la réalisation. Il coréalise le film d'action John Wick (2014) avec la collaboration de Chad Stahelski, qu'il a rencontré sur le tournage de V pour Vendetta. Keanu Reeves y incarne un ancien tueur à gages dans sa quête de vengeance. Le film reçoit des critiques globalement positives et totalise environ 86 millions de recettes mondiales, pour un budget de 20 millions de dollars.

Il poursuit son parcours de réalisateur, cette fois en solo, avec le thriller Atomic Blonde. Dans ce film, prévu pour 2017, il dirige notamment Charlize Theron, Sofia Boutella et James McAvoy. Il réalisera ensuite la suite de Deadpool prévue pour 2018. Il est officialisé dans le poste en novembre 2016.

Kyle LeBlanc (Van Damme) is an American working overseas in Russia. When he hears his wife being attacked over the phone, Kyle rushes home to find that he is too late. The man who has killed his wife is found not guilty on lack of evidence (but in fact because the defense bought the judge). Kyle, therefore, takes the law into his own hands and kills the man to avenge his wife's death, and for this he is sentenced to life in prison without parole. He soon befriends inmate Billy Cooper, a 21-year-old who is subjected to constant rape and beatings by prison inmates (they are actually helped by the guards who lock him in cells with these prisoners during the night) and also Malakai, a wheelchair-bound prisoner who claims to know the ins and outs of prison life.

Following release from prison, Daniel "Danny" Ocean (George Clooney) violates his parole by traveling to California to meet his partner-in-crime and friend Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) to propose a caper. The two go to Las Vegas to pitch the plan to wealthy friend and former casino owner Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould). The plan consists of simultaneously robbing the Bellagio, The Mirage, and the MGM Grand casinos. Reuben's familiarity with casino security makes him very reluctant to get involved, but when he starts to think of it as a good way to get back at his rival, Terry Benedict (Andy García), who owns all three casinos, Reuben agrees to finance the operation. Because the casinos are required by the Nevada Gaming Commission to have enough cash on hand to cover all their patrons' bets, the three predict that, on the upcoming night of a highly anticipated boxing match, the Bellagio vault will contain more than $150,000,000.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves), who has just lost his wife Helen (Bridget Moynahan) to an undisclosed illness, receives a gift from her posthumously in the form of a Beagle puppy named Daisy, along with a letter from her saying she arranged for him to have Daisy to help him cope with her demise. Initially indifferent to Daisy, he eventually connects to the puppy as they spend the day driving around in his vintage '69 Mustang. At a gas station, he encounters a trio of Russian gang members, whose leader Iosef (Alfie Allen) insists on buying his car. John refuses to sell and greets Iosef's snide remark in Russian with a retort in the same language before leaving. The three follow John to his home, break in at night, and attack John, who is knocked unconscious just after seeing Daisy mortally wounded.
