Born: January 6, 1968 in Los Angeles, California, USA

While in high school, Singleton learned “that the film business was controlled by screenplays”. After graduating from high school in 1986, Singleton was accepted to the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television’s prestigious Film Writing Program. During his four-year studies there, he won three writing awards. These achievements in writing earned Singleton a contract with the powerful Creative Artists Agency during his sophomore year at USC. Columbia wanted to make the picture, but at first wanted someone else to direct this. Singleton believed only he could do this, and did.
