WilliamMartellWilliam C. Martell has written 19 films that were carelessly slapped onto celluloid: 3 for HBO, 2 for Showtime, 2 for USA Net, and a whole bunch of CineMax Originals (which is what happens when an HBO movie goes really, really wrong). He has been on some film festival juries, including Raindance in London (five times – once with Mike Figgis and Saffron Burrows, once with Lennie James and Edgar Wright – back to “jury duty” in 2009 and 2012 and in 2013 with Julian Assange). The late Roger Ebert discussed his work with Gene Siskel on his 1997 “If We Picked The Winners” Oscar show. He’s quoted a few times in Bordwell’s great book “The Way Hollywood tells It”. His USA Net flick HARD EVIDENCE was released on video the same day as the Julia Roberts’ film Something To Talk About and out-rented it in the USA. In 2007. He had two films released on DVD on the same day and both made the top 10 rentals. Recently wrote the remake of a hit 1980s horror flick for a studio, and later this year should have both an action film and a family film in production.
