Director Bio

Gerard Johnson (b. 1973) is a British director known for his work on Tony (2010) and Hyena (2014).


Inspired by the Dennis Nilsen case and featuring a remarkable central performance by his cousin, the brilliant Peter Ferdinando, Johnson’s extraordinary debut feature is a masterpiece. A powerful blend of social-realism and shocking horror, Tony showcases the talents of Johnson as a director, the skill of Ferdinando as a lead actor, and the creative strength of their unique working relationship. Matt Johnson’s soundtrack enhances his brother’s work beautifully, capturing the strange and lonely essence of their cousin’s wonderful performance in haunting musical style.
