Born in Morocco, Hadida and his brother Victor have been credited with bringing popular American movies such as Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, David Fincher’s Seven and martial-arts pics starring Jean-Claude Van Damme to French theaters in the 1990s. Hadida was also well-known for his collaboration with Tony Scott (died August 19, 2012) on True Romance and Domino, with Constantin Film on the Resident Evil franchise, and with Christophe Gans on Silent Hill.

Hadida, his brother & father are cofounders/coowners of Metropolitan FilmExport (American indie distributor).

Please note Samuel Hadida was the lead producer of the reboot of The Crow, allegedly starrring Jason Momoa (Game of ThronesAquaman) - although rumors are Momoa has withdrawn from the project. Sony announced on 11/18/18 that they’ve set the new Crow movie release for 10/11/19. Hadida died suddenly on 11/27/18. 

Hadida's death continues the die-off of major directors, writers, and producers during the 237th month since Stanley Kubrick's death. See Cryptokubrology: Syncing Deaths.
