布拉德·佩顿， Brad Peyton (born September 16, 1980) is a Canadian-born film director, writer and television producer, born in Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador. Brad first gained fame with a short film and gothic comedy entitled Evelyn: The Cutest Evil Dead Girl (2002). The film was initially shown to Peyton's fellow classmates, who clapped in approval. A filmmaker named Jeremy Podeswa thus suggested Peyton should also show the film to a lawyer in the film business in New York. This allowed the film to be distributed among the filmmaking elite. Evelyn also appeared in the Toronto International Film Festival in 2002. He then created and produced the claymation television series What It's Like Being Alone, which was picked up by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 2006. One of Peyton's mentors is US actor Tom Hanks. He is currently directing the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, entitled Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
