I’m a New York City based writer/director and occasional producer. I do all those things with my lifelong best friend and filmmaking partner David Levien. Some of our movies are Rounders, Solitary Man, Knockaround Guys, Ocean’s Thirteen and The Illusionist (check IMDB for exact credits). David and I also directed the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary This is What They Want.
I am a Grantland contributor and once in a while, when someone asks me to act in a movie, I say yes. Two of these are Michael Clayton and Premium Rush. You can find me on twitter @briankoppelman and my Six Second Screenwriting Lessons are on Vine.
My wife, the novelist Amy Koppelman, and I have two children.
