JEFF WADLOW (Directed by/Screenplay by/Executive Producer) wrote and directed True Memoirs of an International Assassin, which starred Kevin James and Andy Garcia, and was at the forefront of Netflix's expansion into original movies. His preceding action comedy, Kick-Ass 2, was named one of the 10 best films of the year by Quentin Tarantino, who stated the movie demonstrated a "real auteur approach." While prepping that movie, Wadlow developed and executive produced the worldwide hit Non-Stop, which starred Liam Neeson, and wrote the X-Men/Deadpool spin-off X-Force for Fox and Ryan Reynolds, which will go into production this fall.

A graduate of Dartmouth College, Wadlow attended the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC, where he conceived and directed his thesis film, tHE tOWeR oF BabBLe, winning more than a dozen awards before taking the top prize in the Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival. Wadlow used the $1 million grant to make his first feature, Cry Wolf, which was released by Universal Pictures. His next feature, the action/drama Never Back Down, which starred two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou, beat out big-budget competition to win Best Fight at the MTV Movie Awards, kicking off an MMA franchise with two sequels and counting. In television, Wadlow's first pitch sold in a competitive situation to CBS and Warner Bros. with Joel Silver (The Matrix) producing, eventually going to pilot. He followed that with another pilot order from CBS for his character-based procedural starring Minnie Driver. Wadlow went on to collaborate with Cartlon Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) to help launch the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated series Bates Motel. Wadlow re-teamed with Cuse as a writer and producer on the final season of The Strain, created by Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water) and Chuck Hogan (The Town). In addition to his film and television work, Wadlow has directed award-winning shorts and PSAs starring beloved actors, such as Vanessa Williams, Danny DeVito and Meryl Streep.

Since 2004, Wadlow has returned to his hometown every year to lead The Adrenaline Film Project, a program he founded to help filmmakers of all ages write, shoot and screen a short film in the Virginia Film Festival in just 72 hours. Through the Adrenaline Film Project, Wadlow has helped produce more than 200 short films, personally mentoring over 600 aspiring filmmakers.
