Tim Sullivan (born July 2, 1964 in South Plainfield, New Jersey) is an American film director, producer, actor, and screenwriter.


Early career

His interest in film began as a teenager when he landed a job as a production assistant on the 1983 cult horror film, Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn. Sullivan majored in film studies at New York University, and his first writer/director/producer credit was the short A Christmas Treat (1985). After graduating NYU, he worked as a production assistant on such award winning films as Three Men and a Baby, Cocktail, Coming To America, and The Godfather III.[1][2]


Throughout his career, Sullivan has worn many hats, including acting.[3] Much like Alfred Hitchcock and M. Night Shyamalan, he has cast himself for roles in his own films.[4] He was production manager for the independent films, If Looks Could Kill (1986)[5] and America Exposed (1990)[6] and produced New Line Cinema's Detroit Rock City which starred Edward Furlong and James DeBello. After working in development at New Line Cinema for five years[7] , Sullivan formed his own production company, New Rebellion Entertainment.[8][9]

Sullivan's mainstream directorial debut was the well-received Lion's Gate's horror-comedy[10], 2001 Maniacs (2005) starring Robert Englund and Lin Shaye.[11] This was followed by Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror (2005) (as co-writer and producer) and Driftwood (2006), a supernatural thriller about troubled youths at a reform camp starring Raviv Ullman and Talan Torriero.[12]

Sullivan will act as judge and "guest director" on VH1's Scream Queens 2, scheduled to premiere in 2010.[13][14], having just produced the directing debut of seventeen year old J.D. Lifshitz; the Indie thriller "Killed on the Fourth of July[15].

Due for release in 2010 is the much anticipated sequel to 2001 MANIACS, FIELD OF SCREAMS.
