Ian Sharp, né le 13 novembre 1946 à Clitheroe, dans le Lancashire (au Royaume-Uni) est un réalisateur britannique.

Biography

Ian Sharp fut élève à la Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, au Blackburn and Hatfield College , à l’Université de Durham, où il obtient en 1968 un diplôme avec mention en Psychologie et Philosophie moderne. Pendant les années 1970, il travaille à la BBC. Il fait d’abord des documentaires pour le département des sujets généraux, puis plus tard pour le département de musique et d’arts, principalement pour les séries documentaires Arena et Omnibus . En 1978, la BBC lui octroie un congé de 3 mois pour réaliser un film intitulé The Music Machine , et c’est cette expérience qui le mène à s’intéresser à l’art dramatique.

En 1980, il connaît son premier succès avec la série télévisée Minder , une comédie dramatique diffusée sur ITV. Elle est rapidement suivie par Les Professionnels. Au total, il réalise 6 épisodes pour ces deux séries. Peu après, il réalise son premier long métrage, Commando (1982), produit par Euan Lloyd. S’ensuivent six épisodes de Robin of Sherwood pour ITV, puis il se consacre durant quelques années à réaliser des épisodes pour la télévision, jusqu’à ce que Robert Zemeckis lui demande d’être le réalisateur de seconde équipe pour Qui veut la peau de Roger Rabbit, avec Bob Hoskins.

En 1994, Martin Campbell lui propose de réaliser les scènes d’action de GoldenEye, avec Pierce Brosnan dans le rôle de James Bond. La scène de course-poursuite de chars de combat et le saut audacieux du haut du barrage sur lequel s’ouvre le film sont très respectés dans l’industrie du cinéma.

Ian Sharp parle couramment le français et l’allemand (en plus de l’anglais). Il vit dans l’Oxfordshire avec sa femme, l’écrivain et femme de télévision Sue Cook .

In the year 2008, heavy rainfall has flooded large areas of London. Rookie police officer Dick Durkin (Duncan) is assigned to partner Harley Stone (Hauer), a burnt-out and highly cynical homicide detective who, according to his commanding officer, survives on "anxiety, coffee and chocolate" after being unable to prevent the murder of his partner by a serial killer several years previously. Now however, the murders have begun again and Stone and Durkin are assigned the case. After investigating the scenes of several killings, they appear no closer to identifying the killer, with their only clues being that the murders seem to be linked to the lunar cycle, and that the killer has multiple recombinant DNA strands, having absorbed the DNA of the victims.
