Biography

Alors qu'il est étudiant à l'Université de New York en 1999, James Cox réalise son premier court métrage intitulé Atomic Tabasco pour lequel il reçoit un prix. Ce court métrage lui permet alors d'être repéré par des producteurs de Hollywood.

Il peut dès lors réaliser le film Highway en 2002 pour un budget de 14000000 de dollars. Le film sort directement en DVD bien qu'il soit salué par la critique. On peut y remarquer la présence de Jared Leto.

L'année suivante, il réalise le film Wonderland qui raconte l'histoire de l'affaire des meurtres de Wonderland et ayant pour principal protagoniste le célèbre acteur de films pornographiques, John Holmes. On peut y remarquer la présence des acteurs Val Kilmer, Kate Bosworth, Lisa Kudrow ou encore Carrie Fisher ainsi que le compositeur Cliff Martinez signant la musique originale.

En 2005, il signe la réalisation du clip vidéo pour All About Us du groupe de rock russe t.A.T.u..

En 2010, il est un moment pressenti pour réaliser The Billionaire Boys Club film qui aurait retracé l'histoire d'un club d'investissement à l'origine d'une arnaque financière mais le projet est sans suite.

À la veille du 14 juillet, Zoé Naville, jeune Française, prépare un attentat à Paris. Son objectif : créer un choc dans la société, sans tuer le moindre civil. Michael Mason, petit voleur américain, dérobe le sac de Zoé. Il en extrait ce qui l'intéresse et se débarrasse du reste dans une poubelle. Au même moment, dans une base secrète de la CIA de la capitale française, l'agent Sean Briar, de retour de difficiles missions en Syrie et en Irak, essaie de s'adapter à son nouvel environnement. Les circonstances dramatiques vont l'obliger à s'acclimater plus vite encore, car on apprend que cet attentat a été planifié par le ministère de l'Intérieur, qui avait pour intention un transfert d'un demi-milliard.

Scott (Ryan Phillippe) is a man who has been in and out of rehabilitation for 10 years and is haunted by the ghost of his dead mother pressing him to return home to the family he turned his back on years ago. Outfitted with nothing more than a bag of pills and a sack of marijuana (and a horse instead of a car), he goes back to Texas only to be faced with his brother’s wife Katherine (Paquin), who he is still pining for, his first love.

Set in 1994, the film opens in Las Vegas with Pilot Kelson (Jake Gyllenhaal), a drug dealer, who poses as a valet and takes a customer's Rolls Royce to give his girlfriend a ride to work. His best friend Jack Hayes (Jared Leto) is a self-employed pool cleaner, who gets caught having sex with the wife of Burt Miranda (Mark Rolston), an organized crime figure. While Jack escapes the initial confrontation with Miranda unharmed, Miranda sends a trio of goons (referred to throughout the remainder of the film as "Miranda's Pandas") to break Jack's feet. Jack convinces Pilot to flee and Pilot proposes they go to Seattle without telling him they're going there to see an old fling of Pilot's.
