Weaver wrote, directed and starred in the award-winning thriller “Cut to the Chase” (with Lance Henriksen) and the acclaimed romantic comedy “6 Month Rule” (alongside Martin Starr, Natalie Morales and John Michael Higgins). Previous films he’s written and directed include “Weather Girl” (with Mark Harmon, Jon Cryer and Jane Lynch) and “Outside Sales.” He also co-wrote and acted in “Manic” (with Don Cheadle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. To date, he has written eight feature films.
Weaver most recently wrote and directed “Santa Girl,” a holiday film co-produced by Shenandoah University and Los Angeles-based Capital Arts Entertainment that stars Hollywood actors Barry Bostwick and Jennifer Stone. Approximately 60 Shenandoah students were involved in the project, serving as a majority of the cast and crew.
I’m honored to be a part of Shenandoah. I love being around kids and people who want to learn. I think Shenandoah is really backing up its film department, which has taken some huge strides forward in the past couple of years, starting with ‘Santa Girl.’”
