Most recently, Verbinski directed the immensely successful Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, starring Johnny Depp. Released by Disney in 2004, the film went on to become one of the top grossing films of the year and earned Depp an Oscar nomination for his performance. Prior to this swashbuckling adventure, Verbinski directed the chilling horror film The Ring, starring Naomi Watts, raising the bar for fans of the genre around the world. The Ring grossed nearly $130 million domestically and helped to make Naomi Watts a household name. Always enigmatic in his choices and willing to cross genres, The Weather Man represents Verbinski's first foray into drama.
Prior to embarking into the world of features, Verbinski was an award-winning commercial director. The UCLA graduate also cut his teeth extensively in directing high-profile music videos for such cutting edge artists as Bad Religion and The Crystal Method. Verbinski is currently in production on the next two installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. He lives with his family in Los Angeles.
