Stephen Sommers is an Ohio-born director, producer, and screenwriter with an estimated net worth of $20 million dollars. Stephen Sommers sold his first feature for $7 million dollars just after finishing graduate school. He went on to write films for the Walt Disney Company and achieved recognition as a director after the release of "The Mummy", which he wrote and directed in 1999. Since then he has directed "The Mummy Returns", "Van Helsing", and, most recently, "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra".
Stephen Sommers (born March 20, 1962) is an American screenwriter and film director, best known for The Mummy and its sequel, The Mummy Returns. He also directed Disney's live action version of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, the action/horror film Van Helsing, and the 2009 film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Stephen Sommers was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and grew up in St. Cloud, Minnesota where he attended St. Cloud Apollo High School. He is a 1980 graduate of Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, and the University of Seville in Spain. After graduating, he spent four years performing as an actor in theater groups and managing rock bands throughout Europe. He eventually returned to the United States and moved to Los Angeles, where he attended the USC School of Cinematic Arts for three years, earning a master's degree and writing and directing the award-winning short film Perfect Alibi.
Perfect Alibi helped Sommers acquire independent funding to write and direct his first feature film, the teen racing film Catch Me If You Can, filmed for $800,000 on location in his hometown of St. Cloud. The film was sold at the Cannes Film Festival for $7 million and later debuted on video in the United States.
Almost four years later, broke and in danger of having his house repossessed, he wrote and directed an adaptation of Mark Twain's classic The Adventures of Huck Finn for Walt Disney Pictures, as well as Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. He later wrote the screenplays for Gunmen and The Adventures of Tom and Huck, which he also executive produced for Disney, and worked as a staff writer at Hollywood Pictures. While there he worked on a script called Tentacle, which he later directed under the title Deep Rising in 1998.
In 1999, he wrote and directed Universal Studios' big-budget remake of The Mummy. The film was a smash hit, and Sommers received two Saturn Award nominations for Best Director and Best Writer in 2000 by the Academy of Science Fic
