He has written screenplays for numerous films including SHOWBOAT (1988) directed by Rick Schmidt; HEARTACHES (1981), and RUNNING BRAVE (1982), both directed by Don Shebib; THE GOLDEN EIGHTIES (1985), directed by Chantal Ackerman; INTERNAL AFFAIRS (1990), directed by Mike Figgis; DEEP COVER (1992), directed by Bill Duke which Mr. Bean also produced; MULHOLLAND FALLS (1995), directed by Lee Tamahori; DESPERATE MEASURES (1997), directed by Barbet Schroeder; ENEMY OF THE STATE (1998), directed by Tony Scott; and MURDER BY NUMBERS (2001), also directed by Barbet Schroeder.
Bean has been developing the idea for THE BELIEVER for nearly twenty years. Three years ago, Mr. Bean made a study for the film, shooting six scenes in 16mm with a pick-up cast and crew. This developed into the thirteen-minute short THOUSAND, and led to the writing of the feature script.
Mr. Bean is married to Leora Barish (who wrote DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN). They attend a Conservative synagogue in New York City and have two children.
