About Jason Hall (Writer/Director)

Jason Hall is an Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker whose films seamlessly blend incisive social commentary with emphatically human stories, turning real people and challenging issues into gripping, entertaining cinema.

Hall is the product of a military family: His grandfather was a WWII vet, his uncle was a Marine in Vietnam and his half-brother was disabled in the Army during Desert Storm. Having witnessed the effects of war on those who fight, he was inspired by the remarkable story of Chris Kyle. After meeting Kyle and hearing his story firsthand, Hall was honored to be entrusted with authentically rendering his journey on screen. American Sniper, written and executive produced by Hall and directed by Clint Eastwood, was released in 2014 by Warner Bros. and earned six Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay for Hall.

Hall currently has several diverse projects in development, including Rasputin for Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way.

Born in Lake Arrowhead, California, Hall attended Phillips Exeter Academy and USC. He began his career working as an actor before transitioning to filmmaking. Additional screenplay credits include his debut feature Spread, which was produced by and starred Ashton Kutcher; and the thriller Paranoia, which starred Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman.

Hall currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and three children.
