BEN YOUNGER

Ben Younger, the writer and director wunderkind of cult thriller, Boiler Room, and Meryl Streep starrer Prime, continues to direct edgy cinematic fare, culminating in his latest feature, Bleed for This, which stars Miles Teller as world champion fighter Vinny Pazienza and Aaron Eckhart as the trainer who helped Pazienza come back to the ring after a near fatal car crash left him with a broken neck. The film, released nationwide on November 19, is produced by Raging Bull’s Martin Scorsese and American Beauty and Silver Linings Playbook’s Bruce Cohen, and is abuzz with Oscar potential. Ben came up in the commercial ranks as a grip and cameraman, and began his commercial directing career at Chelsea Pictures. He’s also directed a body of comedic spots for Amazon. At The Devil You Know, Ben will pursue authentic storytelling akin to the grit and edge of his feature body of work and his diverse passion for adventure; he is an avid motorcycle road-racer, surfer, and recently received his pilot’s license.
