Joshua Benjamin "Josh" Trank (born February 19, 1984) is an American film writer and director. He is known for directing his first feature film, the 2012 Twentieth Century Fox film, Chronicle.

Biography

À seulement 22 ans, Josh Trank commence sa carrière à la télévision en mettant en scène et en écrivant cinq épisodes de la mini-série policière Kill Point : Dans la ligne de mire, diffusée en 2007. La même année, il réalise le court-métrage Stabbing at Leia’s 22nd Birthday, en hommage à Star Wars.

Il dirige ensuite son premier long-métrage, Chronicle, qui sort en 2012 au cinéma. Dans ce film found footage, trois adolescents se découvrent des super-pouvoirs après un contact avec une matière extra-terrestre. Le film révèle de jeunes acteurs comme Dane DeHaan ou Michael B. Jordan. À seulement 27 ans, le réalisateur connait un gros succès au box-office avec ce film : Chronicle totalise 126 636 097 $ de recettes mondiales pour un budget de seulement 12 millions de dollars.

Grâce au succès de Chronicle, Josh Trank est choisi pour diriger Les Quatre Fantastiques, reboot des aventures des personnages du même nom. Il instaure un rajeunissement de la franchise et retrouve Michael B. Jordan de Chronicle pour incarner Johnny Storm alias La Torche humaine. Le film est sorti à l'été 2015.

Le scénariste Simon Kinberg, avec lequel il a travaillé sur Les Quatre Fantastiques, le recommande pour diriger l'un des spin-off de la saga Star Wars prévu pour 2018. Cependant, Josh Trank annonce qu'il quitte le projet en mai 2015.

Après l'échec public et critique de son précédent film, Les Quatre Fantastiques, il revient à la réalisation d'un film biographique centré sur les dernières années d'Al Capone, incarné par Tom Hardy.

Paul Aufiero (Patton Oswalt) is a parking garage attendant who lives with his mother (Marcia Jean Kurtz) in Staten Island, New York. He relentlessly follows the New York Giants football team. He and his friend Sal (Kevin Corrigan) faithfully attend each Giants game; however, as they can't afford tickets, they must content themselves with watching the games on a battery-powered TV in the stadium parking lot. Paul is also a regular caller to the Sports Dogg's (Scott Ferrall) radio talk show, where he refers to himself as "Paul from Staten Island," rants in support of the Giants, and berates his mysterious on-air rival, Philadelphia Eagles fanatic "Philadelphia Phil" (Michael Rapaport). Paul's family criticizes him for doing nothing with his life. He disregards their scorn and happily devotes himself to his beloved team.
