Doug Liman Career
1996 was his first major success when he released Swingers. The film written by Jon Favreau and based on Favreau’s life is a comedy about struggling actors amid the L.A. club milieu. The film was a critical success and thus jump-started the careers of Liman and the actors. Later, Liman sold the film to Miramax for $5.5 million. Next, he directed Go (1999) which tracks the events of a drug deal gone wrong through three different points of view as plot lines diverge and reconverge. Moreover, he was the film’s cinematographer.
The film was an indie hit and made a profit at the box office grossing $28.4 million worldwide against a $02 million budget. That same year, he shot a commercial for Nike featuring Tiger Woods. Next, he directed the 2002 action thriller, The Bourne Identity starring Matt Damon. The film is an adaptation of the 1980 Robert Ludlum novel. The film was also a box office success earning over $200 million and began a Bourne film franchise that has since included four additional films. Liman only directed the first Bourne film but served as executive producer for three of the four sequels (2004’s The Bourne Supremacy, 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, and 2016’s Jason Bourne). From 2003 to 2007
He executive produced and directed the first two episodes (“Premiere” and “The Model Home”) of the successful Fox prime-time drama The O.C. He continued to produce and direct a series of comedy shorts for the Chrysler Film Project and Cannes Film Festival entitled Indie Is Great. In 2005, he directed Mr. & Mrs. Smith, a comedic thriller about an increasingly distant married couple, both secret assassins who are hired to kill each other. The film thus became Liman’s most commercially successful to date and is well known for the off-screen romance developed between stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie after making the film.
In 2005 also, he signed on to direct the pilot episode of NBC’s television series Heist, which is about a season-long attempt to run three jewelry stores on Beverly Hills’ swanky Rodeo Drive. That same year also, the production company Hypnotic struck a deal with NBC Universal Television Studio. Shortly afterward, he renamed the production company from Hyptonic to Dutch Oven. His film adaptation of Steven Gould’s science fiction novel, Jumper was released in 2008. He then co-founded the website 30ninjas.com in 2009. The website is geared toward fans of action movies and television, gaming, extreme sports, and viral videos. Also, he maintains a blog on the site. In 2010, he directed Fair Game, about the Plame affair which competed for the Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
The next year, he directed and produced I Just Want My Pants Back, a television series that aired on MTV. He went on to produce Covert Affairs and Suits, two original series on the USA Network. In 2014, he directed the film adaptation of the Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel, All You Need is Kill released as Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise. In 2017, he directed Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena in the military thriller, The Wall. And directed Cruise again in the crime-action film American Made, a biopic of pilot Barry Seal. He then signed on to direct Dark Universe in August 2016. This is a film set within the DC Extended Universe and based on the superhero team Justice League Dark after leaving the adaptation of Gambit.
However, due to schedule conflicts with the film Chaos Walking (2021), he departed from the project. He then announced in January 2022, that the Edge of Tomorrow sequel Live Die Repeat and Repeat was currently in its early planning stages. It was reported in May 2020, that Liman would be directing, writing, and producing a fictional movie shot in outer space. Thus Tom Cruise is set to star and produce.
