Director Lee Tamahori shooting a scene in the film The Edge, 1997. The Edge is a 1997 American survival drama film directed by Lee Tamahori and starring Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin. Bart the Bear, a trained Kodiak bear known for appearances in several Hollywood movies, also appears in the film as a vicious grizzly; this was one of his last film roles. Lee Tamahori (born 17 June 1950) is a New Zealand filmmaker best known for directing the 1994 film Once Were Warriors and the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day. Born Warren Lee Tamahori,[1] in Wellington, New Zealand, he is of Māori ancestry on his father's side and British on his mother's. Educated at Massey High School and Tawa College,[2] he began his career as a commercial artist and photographer. He moved to the film industry in the late 1970s, initially getting in the door by working for nothing, then worked as a boom operator for Television New Zealand, and on the 1978 feature Skin Deep, Goodbye Pork Pie, and Bad Blood. In the early 1980s Geoff Murphy employed him as an assistant director on Utu, and he subsequently worked as first assistant director on films like The Silent One, The Quiet Earth, Came a Hot Friday and Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence. In 1986 Tamahori co-founded a commercial production company Flying Fish and made his name with a series of high-profile television commercials, including one awarded "Commercial of the Decade".[1] His break as a filmmaker came with Once Were Warriors (1994), a gritty depiction of urban Māori life that was phenomenally successful in New Zealand and achieved further success worldwide. He then moved to Hollywood and directed the period thriller Mulholland Falls (1996), although this was not received well critically or commercially. This was followed by the successful wilderness film The Edge (1997) and Die Another Day (2002), the twentieth James Bond movie. He also directed an episode of The Sopranos. Tamahori's next film was the sequel to xXx (2002), titled XXX: State of the Union (2005) starring Ice Cube and Willem Dafoe; he replaced the original director, Rob Cohen. His next film was Next (2007), a science fiction action film based on The Golden Man, a short story by Philip K. Dick. The film starred Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore, and Jessica Biel. In 2010 he directed The Devil's Double starring Dominic Cooper, a dramatisation of the claims of Latif Yahia to have been Uday Hussein's body-double, released in 2011.[3][4] He returned to New Zealand in 2015 to direct "Mahana" based on the novel "Bulibasha" by Witi Ihimaera, and starring Temuera Morrison. The movie will be released in 2016. [5]
