John Lee Hancock      

Screenwriter, Film Director & Producer; Best Known for "The Rookie" and "The Blind Side"

Hancock's debut as a screenwriter and director came in 1991 with Hard Time Romance. He worked on two more films as a screenwriter with A Perfect World and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil before making his first directing effort since 1991 in 2002 with the sports drama The Rookie, which was a success both critically and commercially.

In 2004, he wrote and directed The Alamo, which was highly unsuccessful at the box office, and would become the second-highest box office bomb in movie history.

Five years later, he made the Academy Award-winning The Blind Side, which was extremely successful. He co-wrote the upcoming musical film, The Goree Girls and re-teamed with Disney for Saving Mr. Banks, a film about the life of P.L. Travers and her difficult negotiations with Walt Disney over adapting her famous novel "Mary Poppins" into a feature film.
