- SYLVAIN WHITE, THE LOSERS (2010)
Initially garnering accolades and awards for his short film work, White transitioned into commercials and music videos. One of his first full-length features was I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, the third chapter in the popular horror franchise, but it was 2007’s Stomp the Yard that introduced the French-born director to mainstream audiences. The dance flick generated more than $75 million worldwide. Last year, White attempted to expand his international appeal with the action film The Losers, which starred Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba and Chris Evans, but the project only generated $23 million domestically.
