Don Murphy was born in Long Island, New York, and grew up dreaming of making movies. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business he moved to Los Angeles where he received his MFA degree from the prestigious University of Southern California’s School of Cinema-Television. The first film he produced was NATURAL BORN KILLERS, based on a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino which was directed by Oliver Stone. That film attracted so much attention it was eventually canonized in a best selling book, KILLER INSTINCT. Since then Don has focused on producing films he wants to see, be they Stephen King’s APT PUPIL directed by Bryan Singer or Alan Moore’s FROM HELL directed by the Hughes Brothers and starring Johnny Depp. He is also a producer of the blockbuster franchise TRANSFORMERS and the Hugh Jackman-starring REAL STEEL. He is currently developing a film version of the best-selling Cory Doctorow novel LITTLE BROTHER, working on the next installment of the TRANSFORMERS franchise and has many other projects in development for film and television.
