Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Starting with his first major film, "Natural Born Killers" (1994), renegade producer Don Murphy played by his own rules. Shortly after graduating from USC's School of Cinematic Arts in the early 1990s, Murphy teamed up with producing partner Jane Hamsher to turn unknown screenwriter Quentin Tarantino's first script into a feature. Fueled by the film's success -- and its controversy -- Murphy formed the production company Angry Films four years later, spearheading such moody projects as the gritty indie drama "Bully" (2001) and the Johnny Depp thriller "From Hell" (2001) before specializing in more crowd-pleasing fare like the popular "Transformers" series and the boxing-robots feature "Real Steel" (2011).
