Roel Reine was born in The Netherlands, and with his first theatrical feature 'The Delivery' he won The Golden Calf (the Dutch equivalent to an Academy Award) for Best Director.

In 2005 Roel Reine moved to Los Angeles and has directed now an impressive slate of 20 feature films for studios like Universal, 20th Century Fox, Sony and Lionsgate, as well with independent international producers. Roel is also the Director of Photography on all his movies.

Roel Reine is known by fans, critics and Hollywood studios as one of the best modern action directors around today. Some of his latest movies include, ‘Hard Target 2’ with Scott Adins, ’The Man with the Iron Fists 2’, (with RZA), 'Dead in Tombstone’ (with Mickey Rourke for Universal a VOD hit), and two very popular 'Death Race’ prequels, with Sean Bean and Ving Rhames.

His sequels to a very popular car chase franchise: DEATH RACE 2 and DEATH RACE: INFERNO, have been extremely successful for Universal Studios and were praised by critics and fans: 'one of the best prequels ever', 'Roel Reine raises the bar for straight to video movies', 'attracting A-List cast and worthy of theatrical release'.

Fans and critics praise his directing and camera work as: 'You don’t see that kind of ‘coolness’ in theatrical films'.

DEAD IN TOMBSTONE, his supernatural western with Mickey Rourke and Danny Trejo was a huge financial hit on VOD and blu-ray and critics wrote: 'some sequences are better than what you may see in mega blockbusters’.

His 2015 movie ‘Admiral’, a.k.a. ‘Michiel de Ruyter', an epic historical Dutch language movie, had a very successfull theatrical release world wide. In 2015 it was the only Dutch movie in box office top ten in The Netherlands, right in between ‘Jurassic World’ and ‘Fast and Furious'. The movie tells the story of a 17th Century Admiral, Michiel de Ruyter, who protects the Dutch population from a civil war between two political factions while defeating English armadas in massive sea-battles.

In 2016 Roel Reine also started directing prime time USA television series, like Michael Bays ‘Black Sails’ for STARZ and ‘Blood Drive’ for Syfy.

In 2017 Roel Reine directed the pilot episodes for Marvel Studio’s and IMAX of ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’, that was released on IMAX screens around the world and then broadcasted on ABC.

End of 2017 Roel Reine will be directing another big Epic Feature Film in the Netherlands named ‘REDBAD’.
