      Biography for David Ren
      http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1975630/bio

      David Ren, is a directorial prodigy who also writes his own scripts.
      He has already been compared to such cinematic idols such as Woody
      Allen and John Favreau (Elf, Swingers). David has been overwhelmed by
      all of this positive critical buzz by the entertainment industry
      experts. The most amazing thing is that he is only 21 years old.

      With his debut film already completed, and more projects being
      offered, and even bigger budget films on the way, David Ren is
      claiming his place amongst the next generation of young Hollywood
      elite taking the industry by storm.

      David was born on the streets of New York to an immigrant Asian
      family. His artistic abilities and brilliance were apparent even at
      an early age.

      In his teens, David was accepted to the prestigious Bronx High School
      of Science. While still a teenager, he started working as a
      screenwriter and was accepted to yet another prestigious school; The
      Professional Children's School of New York. It was at this school
      that his teachers were able to shape and evolve the ambitious future
      director. (Some of David's better known classmates included: Scarlett
      Johansson, Jena Malone, and Kieran Culkin.)

      Through David's hard work and deep understanding for his art, he was
      able to accomplish what people much older then him, never seem to
      grasp in a lifetime. The vision and confidence to succeed in their
      life's dream.

      Before his 17th birthday he moved to Los Angeles to work full-time in
      filmmaking.

      At the age of 20, David wrote and directed his debut "big budget"
      feature film, "Shanghai Kiss", starring Ken Leung (Rush Hour, Red
      Dragon, Inside Man, and X-men 3), Kelly Hu (X-men 2, Scorpion King),
      Hayden Panettiere (Remember the Titans, Joe Somebody, Raising Helen,
      Ice Princess), Joel David Moore (Dodgeball, Art School Confidential),
      Byron Mann (Red Corner, The Corruptor), Summer Altice, Timothy
      Bottoms, and the immortal James Hong.

      David has plans for the world premiere to be shown at the Cannes film
      festival.
