Matt Reeves Career

After making his directorial debut with the romantic film The Pallbearer (1996) and working on the Homicide (1997) and Relativity (1997) series, Reeves created with his friend Abrams, the popular cult series Felicity (1998). 

This famous series told the story of Felicity Porter, a young university student who faces the typical problems of youth and love dramas derived from her confusing feelings for her friend Ben and the student she meets at Noel University.

The series was broadcast between 1998 and 2001 and featured Keri Russell (Felicity), Scott Foley (Noel) and Scott Speedman (Ben). For this same period, Reeves worked as producer and screenwriter for The Yars (2000) and director of one of the episodes of Gideon’s Crossing series (2000).

After several years focused on television, Reeves returned to the cinema with Abrams with the film Cloverfield (Monstrous, 2008). Outstanding fiction film that tells the story of a group of young New Yorkers who face the attack of an alien.

After its release, the film received good reviews and became a blockbuster, leading to the award of Saturn for Best Science Fiction Film and Golden Schmoes for Best Horror Movie of the Year. From the monstrous alien in New York, Reeves went on to approach the vampire myth from a modern perspective with Let Me In (Let Me In, 2010), a fantasy film that featured the renowned youth actress Chloë Grace Moretz.

Inspired by the work of John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let Me In (Let Me In, 2010), tells the story of the young vampire Abby and her connection with the helpless young human Owen, who was played by Kodi Smit-McPhee.

After the success of Let Me In (2010), Reeves worked as director of the sequels of the Planet of the Apes Saga, entitled Planet of the Apes: Confrontation (2014) and Planet of the Apes: War (2017). The two films were well received by critics, taking several statuettes such as the Satellite Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Edition and the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Visual Effects. 

Currently, Reeves is working on the production of the series: The Passage (2019), Surveillance, Tales from the Loop, Away and Mouse Guard, which are expected to be extreme in this year or the next.
