Christophe Gans (born 11 March 1960) is a French film director, producer and screenwriter, who specializes in horror and fantasy movies.
Gans was born in Antibes, France. As a teenager, he spent a large portion of his time creating kung fu-themed Super 8 movies with his friends. He later went on to attend the French film school Idhec, where he created his first short film, Silver Slime. He later spent time as a film critic before co-directing his first film, Necronomicon.
His $29 million-budgeted film Brotherhood of the Wolf was a worldwide success, grossing over $70 million+ in theaters worldwide. It became the second-highest-grossing French-language film in the United States since 1980.
He went on to create the film "labor of love", and the video game film adaptation Silent Hill.
Gans was to write and direct the Capcom video game Onimusha; however, after several setbacks he abandoned it and is now attached to the French film Fantômas. He initially was to direct a sequel to Silent Hill, but later pulled out and was replaced by Michael J. Bassett.
