left London University with a Humanities degree in English/Philosophy/Psychology and Sociology and then went into real estate development before moving into film.
With over 13 years producing and distributing films in both the U.K. and the U.S., Brooks founded Metrodome Group, a U.K.-based production company and distributor that he took public in the mid-'90s. As a distributor, Brooks' films include the likes of Buffalo 66, Palookaville, Chasing Amy and Chopper. As a producer, Brooks' credits include such films as Shadow of the Vampire and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, both of which received Oscar nominations (Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay, respectively), as well as the upcoming romantic comedy The Wedding Date, starring Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney; the off-beat comic murder mystery Jiminy Glick in Lalawood, starring Martin Short; and the outrageous comedy The Long Weekend, starring Chris Klein and Brendan Fehr.
He is currently President of Gold Circle Films.
