Lee Daniels began his career as a casting director on films like Purple Rain or Under the Cherry Moon. Monster?s Ball (2001), the first production of Lee Daniels Entertainment, was a pioneering achievement for being the first sole African-American production of an Academy Award-winning film. His next producing effort was The Woodsman (2004), yet another national and international success. Shadowboxer is the first film on which Daniels, in addition to producer, is also the director.
