Brad Anderson (II) (born 1964) is an American film director, producer and writer. A director of thriller and horror films and television projects, he is best known for having directed The Machinist (2004), starring Christian Bale, and directing The Call (2013), starring Halle Berry. He also produced and directed several installments of the FOX science fiction television series Fringe.
Anderson was born in Madison, Connecticut, the son of Pamela Taylor Anderson, a community services administrator. He is the nephew of Emmy Award-winning actress Holland Taylor. Before he began his film career, he attended Bowdoin College, where he majored in anthropology and Russian. He then went to London to finish his film education before returning to Boston.
His next film was the 2001 psychological horror film Session 9. Unsuccessful at the box office, the film has since gained a cult following. In 2002, Anderson was a member of the dramatic jury at the Sundance Film Festival.

Notably, both Transsiberian and The Machinist were funded by Anglo-German production companies.
His latest film was The Call (2013), a thriller starring Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin. 2014 directed Stonehearst Asylum (Eliza Graves), with Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess and David Thewlis, in the leading roles.
