HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RYAN COOGLER!
This 32-year-old director was born on May 23, 1986 in Oakland, California. He worked all kinds of jobs - security guard, social worker, etc. - before becoming a movie director.
After a few short movies, Coogler turned attention to himself by filming a drama, starring Michael B. Jordan - Fruitvale Station (2013).
Coogler and Jordan will collaborate two more times, on movies Creed (2015) and Black Panther (2018).
Ryan Coogler is currently working on one big screen title - also starring M. B. Jordan - called Wrong Answer, about a math teacher in Atlanta who is scandalized when he looks to get funding for his school by altering his student's test scores. The movie is based on a newspaper article by Rachel Aviv, and it is scripted by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
