Biography

Carrière
Débuts
Après avoir participé à l'écriture du film d'action Piège à grande vitesse, il signe sa première réalisation en 1996, avec la comédie romantique Le Porteur de Cercueil avec David Schwimmer et Gwyneth Paltrow, qu'il co-écrit avec Jason Katims. Le film est un échec commercial et peine à convaincre la critique.

En 1997, il fait ensuite ses débuts à la télévision, en réalisant un épisode de Relativity, une éphémère série sentimentale créée par Jason Katims. La même année, il met également en scène un épisode de la sixième saison de la série policière Homicide.


Succès à la télévision
L'année suivante, il lance la série télévisée Felicity, co-créée avec J. J. Abrams. Celle-ci est acclamée par la critique, notamment pour sa réalisation. La fiction est diffusée entre 1998 et 2002 aux États-Unis.

Parallèlement, il signe le scénario de The Yards, le second film de James Gray et réalise l'épisode pilote de l'éphémère série médicale Gideon's Crossing.

Les années suivantes, il met en scène les épisodes pilote de deux autres séries, toutes deux arrêtées dès leurs premières saisons : en 2003, la série fantastique Miracles et en 2006, la série judiciaire Conviction.


Succès cinématographiques
Il signe son second film avec Cloverfield, en 2008, un film d'action fantastique produit par J. J. Abrams et écrit par Drew Goddard. Le film est un succès critique et commercial.

En 2010, il confirme dans un autre genre, en écrivant et réalisant le film d'horreur Laisse-moi entrer (Let Me In), remake du film suédois Morse. La critique salue la réussite de l'entreprise, qui échoue néanmoins au box-office.

À la suite de l'abandon par Rupert Wyatt de la réalisation de La Planète des singes : Les Origines, c'est lui qui est nommé pour le remplacer. Il met en scène ce second opus intitulé La Planète des Singes : L'Affrontement. Le film répond aux attentes : c'est un énorme succès critique et commercial de l'été 2014 .

En janvier 2014, alors que La Planète des Singes : L'Affrontement n'est pas encore sorti, le producteur Peter Chernin et la 20th Century Fox révèlent que Matt Reeves réalisera et coécrira avec Mark Bomback la suite. Le film sort aux États-Unis le 14 juillet 2017.

En mai 2015, le titre du troisième chapitre est officialisé, pour une sortie décalée à l"été 2017 : War for the Planet of the Apes .
