Born in 1964, screenwriter, producer and director Kurt Wimmer attended the University of South Florida. He graduated that institution with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History. Wimmer's directorial debut came when he directed "One Tough Bastard" (1996), about a vigilante's search for justice after his wife and family are murdered. Wimmer was one of the writers on the remake of "The Thomas Crown Affair" (1999), starring Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan. In 2002 Wimmer directed "Equilibrium," which he wrote, and which he frequently cites as his directorial debut. Wimmer next wrote the action movie "Ultraviolet" (2006), which starred Milla Jovovich in the title role. Wimmer is also the creator of the fictional fighting style known as "Gun Kata," which was featured in "Ultraviolet" and in his 2002 film "Equilibrium." Wimmer followed up "Ultraviolet" with "Street Kings" (2008), which he cowrote with Los Angeles neo-noir author James Ellroy, and which starred Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker and Hugh Laurie. Wimmer next wrote the Angelina Jolie spy thriller "Salt" (2010). In 2015, a sequel to the movie was announced that would also be written by Wimmer. That same year, Wimmer was tapped to write the Hollywood reboot of the Kathryn Bigelow heist classic "Point Break" (1991).
