After spending his formative years in cinema school, Pierre Morel debuted in 2000 as camera operator with the first Richard Berry's film L'Art (délicat) de la séduction.
The next year, he began a career as cinematographer, working with such directors as Louis Leterrier, Corey Yuen, Nancy Meyers, Alek Keshishian, Luc Besson and Phillip Atwell. At the same time, he directed his first film District 13 in 2004, followed by Taken in 2008 and From Paris with Love, in 2010.
Morel was attached to Paramount's planned remake of Frank Herbert's Dune but left the project before it was cancelled. He is also set to direct the action film The Gunman starring Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and potentially Idris Elba.
