Mike Newell

Director

A Cambridge graduate, Newell began directing at age 22, working on numerous plays for TV, both for the BBC and for most of the ITV companies. His television feature ‘The Man in the Iron Mask’ (1977), which was ultimately released as a feature film, served as the springboard to international success.

 

He subsequently directed ‘Dance with a Stranger’ (1984) that won Cannes’ Prix de la Jeunesse, ‘The Good Father’ (1985) that won the Prix Italia, ‘Enchanted April’ (1991) that won 2 Golden Globes and ‘Into the West’. In 1994, he made ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, the record-breaking romantic comedy.

 

Returning to America, Newell made the Mafia thriller ‘Donnie Brasco’ (1997) starring Johnny Depp and Al Pacino, followed by such films as ‘Pushing Tin’ (1999), starring Cate Blanchett, John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie, and ‘Mona Lisa Smile’ (2003), with Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Julia Stiles and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

 

Newell served as executive producer on several projects, including ‘Traffic’ (2000) and ‘High Fidelity’ (2000).

 

As the director of ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ (2005), Newell became the first British director to helm an instalment of the hugely popular franchise.

 

Newell’s recent feature credits include ‘Prince of Persia’, ‘Great Expectations’.

 

He is currently in pre-production on ‘Guernsey’ for Studio Canal starring Lily James and Michiel Huisman.
