About Joel Schumacher
Joel Schumacher was an American filmographer who specialized in primarily in directing and secondly in screenwriting. His heyday was during the late 20th century, in which he was behind some of the most-popular American movies from that era.
Early in his career he actually wrote the screenplays for three movies which centered largely on African-American characters – “Sparkle” (1976), “Car Wash” (1976) and “The Wiz” (1978).
The first movie he directed was “The Incredible Shrinking Woman” (1981). And he went on to direct many more known to the public such as “St. Elmo’s Fire” (which he also wrote, 1985), “The Lost Boys” (1987), “Batman Forever” (1995), “Batman & Robin” (1997) and “The Phantom of the Opera” (which he also wrote and produced the music, 2004).
Schumacher was also a professional producer and costume designer and has worked on a number of music videos.
His parents are named Francis and Marian Schumacher.
In his youth he actually studied at two prominent NYC fashion colleges but later realized his calling was in the film industry. In fact, he didn’t launch his film career until he was already in his 30s.
He ultimately passed away as a result of cancer.
