About The Cast

ELISABETH SHUE, Academy AwardÒ nominee for "Leaving Las Vegas," was born in Wilmington, Delaware, and raised primarily in South Orange, New Jersey. She enrolled at Wellesley College in Massachusetts and studied government, aiming for a career as an attorney. A friend suggested she audition for work in TV commercials in order to help pay college expenses.

She landed a series of commercials and began studying acting at New York's Showcase Theatre. An ABC talent scout spotted one of her commercials and the result was her professional acting debut in the acclaimed "Call To Glory" series starring Craig T. Nelson and Cindy Pickett. She soon won the top female role with Ralph Macchio in the popular feature film "The Karate Kid."

Early in her career, she earned admission to Harvard University and continues to work towards completion of a degree between projects.

Her other film roles include "Adventures In Babysitting," "Cocktail," opposite Tom Cruise; "The Marrying Man," with Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin; and "Soapdish," with Sally Field, Kevin Kline and Whoopi Goldberg. Subsequently, she starred in "Radio Inside," "Twenty Bucks" "Heart And Souls" and Steven Soderbergh’s "Underneath."

It was her extraordinary performance in the 1995 film "Leaving Las Vegas" that brought Shue worldwide stardom. Her performance was singled out for a number of honors, among them an Academy AwardÒ nomination as Best Actress. She was named Best Actress by the Los Angeles Film Critics, National Society Of Film Critics, Dallas Film Critics and South Florida Film Critics, and won the Independent Sprit Award. She also received Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award nominations for her work in the picture.

Bacon left his native Philadelphia to become the youngest student at New York's Circle In The Square Theatre. He made his motion picture acting debut as Chip in the 1978 release "National Lampoon's Animal House."

About The Filmmakers

"Hollow Man" director PAUL VERHOEVEN is one of the most provocative, daring, challenging and controversial storytellers creating film entertainment today. Director of four of the most successful Dutch films ever made, he is now one of the most noted, influential filmmakers in Hollywood.

His widely seen work ranges from "Basic Instinct" to "Total Recall." As diverse as his filmography may appear, each of his films reflects uncompromising vision, fascination with life's moral dilemmas and passion for the cinema. He has developed a reputation as a director whose unrestrained work is honest and often brutal with frank depictions of sexuality and violence.

Verhoeven was born in Amsterdam during the dark years of World War II. He became interested in movies during six years at the University Of Leiden, where he earned a doctorate in mathematics and physics in 1964 and did early short films.

Serving with the Royal Dutch Navy, he was assigned to the Marine Film Service as a documentary filmmaker. The highlight of this period was Verhoeven's selection to make a celebratory film marking the tercentenary of the Marine Corps. The grand scale result was "The Marine Corps" ("Het Korps Mariniers"), a stunning, 23-minute documentary honored with the Silver Sun for military films in France.

Returning to civilian life now dedicated to a life behind the camera, Verhoeven entered Dutch television. It was "Floris" that established Paul Verhoeven on a popular national scale—the 12-episode television adventure series about a medieval Dutch Ivanhoe became a phenomenon.

The director segued into feature films with "Business Is Business" (also known as "Any Special Way" ["Wat Zien Ik"]). The 1971 comedy remains the fourth highest grossing Dutch-made film. This movie was followed by the 1973 release "Turkish Delight" ("Turks Fruit"), "Cathy Tippel" (also known a "A Girl Called Keetje Tippel") and "Soldier Of Orange" ("Soldaat Van Oranje"), which is universally regarded as one of the finest Dutch films ever made.

After making "Gone, Gone" ("Voorbij, Voorbij") for television, Verhoeven again grabbed headlines and created long lines at the boxoffice with his film, "Spetters," in 1980. "The Fourth Man" ("De Vierde Man") followed, as did "Flesh + Blood," his first American financed film.

His next movie was an international mega-hit. "RoboCop," the science fiction saga of a police officer turned into a destructive machine, was a slick, lively, tongue-in-cheek film about resurrection that struck a chord with audiences around the world. It was a boxoffice champion for audiences and critics and the summer hit of 1987.

The director followed "RoboCop" with another blockbuster, "Total Recall." Opening in 1990, it also became the hit of the summer season. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone, the tale of mind-tampering in the 21st century earned two OscarÒ nominations and received the Academy AwardÒ for its dazzling special effects.

Those waiting to see what this relative newcomer to Hollywood could do next soon witnessed "Basic Instinct," the No. 1 worldwide boxoffice smash of 1992. Starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone, the powerful, provocative drama was arguably the most talked-about film of the year.

Controversy followed the filmmaker into 1995 with his tale of the dark side of Las Vegas titled "Showgirls," a picture that lifted the veil from the famed city's scarred face. Prior to "Hollow Man," Verhoeven returned to the science-fiction genre with the robust and rousing entertainment "Starship Troopers."

Paul Verhoeven’s work reflects 21st century existence, with mixed messages, blurred lines between dreams and reality, and no neat resolutions.

Including "Hollow Man," producer DOUGLAS WICK and his Columbia Pictures-based Red Wagon Productions have produced four major motion pictures this year. "Stuart Little," Columbia’s big family holiday release, was produced by Wick and directed by Rob Minkoff ("The Lion King"). Based on the classic book by E. B. White, it was adapted by M. Night Shyamalan (who wrote and directed "The Sixth Sense") and Greg Brooker. The film stars Academy Award® winner Geena Davis, child star Jonathan Lipnicki ("Jerry Maguire"), and introduces a state-of-the-art, computer-generated mouse that was uniquely created for this movie by Sony Pictures Imageworks, Inc. The picture has already grossed $226 million worldwide and is still climbing.

The critically acclaimed "Girl, Interrupted," also a Wick production and Columbia holiday release, was directed by James Mangold. The film, based on the best-selling autobiographical novel by Susanna Kaysen, stars two of the most touted young actresses working today, Academy Award® nominee Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie. Thanks to her breakthrough performance in "Girl, Interrupted," Jolie won both her first Academy Award® and her third Golden Globe. The film’s ensemble cast also includes Academy Award® winners Vanessa Redgrave and Whoopi Goldberg.

Wick also produced this summer’s epic hit "Gladiator," which was directed by Academy Award® nominee Ridley Scott and stars Academy Award® nominee Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix. Set in the time of Marcus Aurelius, this lavish production constructed an almost full-scale replica of the Coliseum on the island of Malta. The film, which boasts a cast of thousands and stunning special effects that duplicate the grandeur of second century Rome, has been heralded as bringing the period epic back in to popularity. It opened to glowing reviews and is currently breaking boxoffice records around the world.

Next up for the versatile Wick will be the international espionage thriller "Spy Game," which will pair movie icons Robert Redford and Brad Pitt. Also prominent on Wick’s upcoming schedule are "Stuart Little 2," which will reunite the successful cast from the original boxoffice hit, and Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated "Memoirs of a Geisha," which has been on The New York Times hardcover and paperback best-seller lists for well over 100 weeks.

Wick’s Red Wagon Productions is a story-based company whose collaboration with a remarkable ensemble of writers has developed screenplays that have attracted some of the most accomplished filmmakers in the world.

Wick has produced two movies by multi-time Academy Award®-winning director Mike Nichols. The most recent was "Wolf," starring Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer. Wick’s first producing effort, which Nichols also directed, was "Working Girl," starring Harrison Ford, Melanie Griffith and Sigourney Weaver. The film garnered six Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture and Best Song (which Carly Simon won for her single "Let the River Run"). It also won five Golden Globes, including Best Picture for Wick.

After graduating cum laude from Yale University, Wick began his career as a coffee boy for filmmaker Alan Pakula, for whom he also became associate producer on "Starting Over." Wick has also produced two other movies for Columbia, including "Hush," starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Lange, and the teenage sensation "The Craft," starring Neve Campbell and Robin Tunney.

"Hollow Man" marks producer ALAN MARSHALL's fourth film collaboration with director Paul Verhoeven. They previously teamed to create the enormously successful erotic thriller "Basic Instinct" in1992, the controversial NC-17-rated "Showgirls" in 1995 and the gigantic space adventure "Starship Troopers" in 1998.

During Marshall's international entertainment career, his films have received four Academy AwardsÒ and 16 OscarÒ nominations, eight Golden Globe Awards out of 16 nominations, 10 British Academy Awards and a special Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

Born in London, the producer began his career as an assistant editor of documentaries and feature films before becoming an editor. He went into production in Britain in the late 1960s.

In 1970, Marshall joined noted director Alan Parker to form The Alan Parker Company. Together, they created seven noteworthy motion pictures, starting in1976 with "Bugsy Malone," a unique musical spoof of gangster films featuring a young cast that included Jodie Foster. In 1978, they released "Midnight Express," the harsh drama of a young American in a Turkish prison. It earned six Academy AwardÒ nominations and won two awards, including OscarsÒ for Oliver Stone's screenplay and Georgio Moroder's music. The film also earned eight Golden Globe nominations and six Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture—Drama. Next came "Fame," a story of young, aspiring performing artists released in 1980. It earned OscarsÒ for Best Original Score and Best Song.

The fourth Parker-Marshall movie was "Shoot The Moon" in 1982, the emotional drama of a disintegrating marriage starring Diane Keaton and Albert Finney from a screenplay by two-time OscarÒ winner Bo Goldman. "Pink Floyd—The Wall," a hypnotic visualization of the best-selling album, was released the same year. "Birdy," which starred Nicolas Cage and Matthew Modine, won the special Grand Jury Prize at the 1985 Cannes Film Festival. It was based on an allegorical novel about a young, silent soldier's lifelong desire to be a bird. Finally, Alan Marshall produced Alan Parker's "Angel Heart," an intriguing American Gothic yarn about the hunt for a missing man starring Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro.

In 1983, Marshall produced the widely acclaimed "Another Country," based on Julian Mitchell's successful London play that speculated on the private school experiences of Guy Burgess and Donald McLean, who became notorious spies for the Russians. Directed by Marek Kanievska, it won the award for Best Artistic Contribution at the l984 Cannes Film Festival.

Marshall also produced "Jacob's Ladder," directed by Adrian Lyne from a screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin and starring Tim Robbins. The brooding tale of a Vietnam veteran was released in 1990. In 1993, he produced the boxoffice hit "Cliffhanger," directed by Renny Harlin and starring Sylvester Stallone and John Lithgow.

In 1985, the British Academy honored Marshall and Alan Parker with the prestigious Michael Balcon Award for outstanding contribution to cinema.

The story for "Hollow Man" is co-written by GARY SCOTT THOMPSON.

Thompson is the author of several screenplays, including "K-911," "Split Second," "White Ghost," "Underachievers" and the forthcoming "Redline" and "Pursuit."

The "Hollow Man" screenplay is by ANDREW W. MARLOWE, who also co-authored the film’s story. Marlowe’s impressive credits include "Air Force One" and "End Of Days."

Raised in the Washington, D. C. area, Marlowe graduated from Columbia University with a degree in English. He attended the graduate screenwriting program at the University Of Southern California School Of Cinema-Television from 1990 to1992. In the fall of 1992, he received the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Nicholl Fellowship for emerging screenwriters.

Shortly after being honored with the Nicholl Fellowship, Marlowe was retained by Hollywood Pictures to adapt Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Steven Millhauser's novel "Edwin Mulhouse" for the screen. In 1994, he sold his first spec screenplay, an action-thriller titled "Apogee," to producers Larry and Chuck Gordon at Universal Pictures.

The writer's first produced screenplay was the exciting large-scale production "Air Force One," starring Harrison Ford and directed by Wolfgang Petersen. That was followed by another monumental movie, "End Of Days," which he also co-produced, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Marlowe's "Hollow Man" screenplay features revolutionary science-fiction excitement while probing an interesting moral dilemma.

He has several projects in various stages of development at a number of studios.

Executive producer MARION ROSENBERG graduated from the University of Manchester in England and University of Grenoble in France. She began her entertainment career in the Bands and Acts Department of the giant theatrical agency MCA.

Between 1960 and 1976, she worked in film production on both sides of the Atlantic on such pictures as "I Could Go On Singing," "The Best Man," "Where Eagles Dare" and "The Missouri Breaks."
