About the Guest

CHAD STAHELSKI (Director, USC Alumnus)

Chad Stahelski made his directorial debut with 2014’s John Wick. The box-office and critical success starred Keanu Reeves, Willem Dafoe, John Leguizamo, Adrianne Palicki, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen and Ian McShane. His next directorial project is Highlander, a reboot of the 1986 cult classic that starred Christopher Lambert.

Stahelski hails from a martial arts background. He entered the film field as a stunt performer at the age of 24 as a stunt double on The Crow, where he doubled for the late Brandon Lee. The greatest break for Stahelski as a stuntman came when he doubled for Keanu Reeves in the seminal sci-fi action hit The Matrix. From there he moved on to fight choreography, stunt coordinating and second-unit directing, working on titles such as Wild Wild West, The Replacements, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, Van Helsing, Constantine, xXx: State of the Union and 300. He has served as second-unit director on Captain America: Civil War, The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, The Brothers Grimsby, Hitman: Agent 47, Escape Plan, After Earth, The Expendables 2, Safe and Ninja Assassin.

With partner David Leitch, Stahelski opened the action design company 8711 in 2006.
