Marc Forster

Director, 'The Kite Runner'

The German-born Forster carries the weight of bringing one of the decade’s most popular novels to the bigscreen this year with December’s Paramount Vantage release, “The Kite Runner.” The story of two economically diverse children frolicking in1970s Kabul, Afghanistan — their lives splintering in very different directions — could give the director an even stronger awards candidacy than he has had in the past with “Finding Neverland” (which earned him a Golden Globe nom) and “Monster’s Ball.”
