Profile Bio Text
Richard Donner (born 24 April 1930) is an American film director, film producer, and comic book writer. The production company The Donners` Company is owned by Donner and his wife, producer Lauren Shuler Donner. After directing the horror film The Omen, Donner became famous for the hailed creation of the first modern superhero film, Superman, starring Christopher Reeve. The influence of this film eventually helped establish the superhero concept as a respected film genre. Donner later continued reinvigorating the buddy film genre with Lethal Weapon (1987) and its sequels only after initial successes by others like Beverly Hills Cop (1984) and Running Scared (1986).
In 2000, he received the President`s Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. He was also nominated for Best Director in 1978 for Superman. Film historian Michael Barson writes that Donner had "emerged as one of Hollywood`s most reliable makers of action blockbusters." His break-through film was in 1976 with The Omen, produced in the `horror boom` following The Exorcist. The film was a violent and popular supernatural thriller that starred Gregory Peck whose son turns out to be the Antichrist.
