Tiller Russell


Tiller Russell is set to direct the feature film SILK ROAD, a millennial gangster movie about the Dark Web. As a documentarian, Russell directed THE SEVEN FIVE, currently on Netflix, which unmasked the rampant police corruption in New York's 75th precinct during the 1990s. Sony Pictures / Annapurna purchased the remake rights for the film in a bidding war. Russell was a writer-producer on NBC’s Chicago PD and a writer on Chicago Fire. He is currently adapting OPERATION ODESSA as a feature screenplay for producers Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman. His next documentary will be THE LAST NARC, the third in a trilogy of films about the American Drug War.
