Rob Cohen has been named the Spring 2016 Marion Knott Filmmaker-in-Residence at Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.

Cohen has worked on projects that include The Fast and the Furious, Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Alex Cross and xXx. In his new position Cohen will counsel 10 selected scholars. 

"As a filmmaker who started in the business as an executive, then became a producer and is now one of America’s most versatile directors, Rob has a broad vision that he can share with students," said dean Bob Bassett in a statement.

Bassett added: "His particular expertise in the action genre and his work in cutting-edge film technology are particularly compelling to the next generation of young filmmakers."
