The varied and busy career of Gilbert (or Gil) Adler spans several decades, film genres, and jobs. Starting out as a producer, he helped shepherd Brian De Palma's low-budget family comedy feature "Home Movies" to the screen. The next few years weren't particularly auspicious, as Adler continued to work in the modest-budget sphere. In 1985 he produced both the Stephen Gyllenhaal thriller "Certain Fury" and the military sex comedy "Basic Training," which was very poorly received. The following decade was busier for Adler, who branched out into other film jobs and also found work in TV. In addition to producing over 40 episodes of the horror anthology "Freddy's Nightmares" ('98), for example, he directed one and wrote four. He repeated this trifecta soon afterwards in a new job, the similar "Tales From the Crypt" ('91). In '98, he sat on the director's chair for one episode apiece of the teen witch series "Charmed" and for the re-imagining of the tropics-set drama "Fantasy Island." It is in movies that Alder generally has concentrated his efforts, however. Working often, he got producer credit on a raft of features, including the '06 superhero reboot "Superman Returns" and "Valkyrie," a biopic about would-be Hitler assassin Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, starring Tom Cruise.
