Bio:

Ryan Wiik is an Actor, Producer and Screenwriter, and has been cast in the title role in the upcoming Morgan Kane (2017) film produced by The Martian producer, Mark Huffam. Wiik is attached to reprise the title character in the planned franchise based on the best-selling book series in sequels, Morgan Kane 2 (2018) and Morgan Kane 3 (2019).

Wiik is best known for starting his career as a producer and entrepreneur, launching Wide Release Pictures headquartered in Los Angeles. Wiik serves as Vice Chairman of the publicly traded film and publishing company, WR Entertainment ("WR"), trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

His first screenplay for motion picture Frank, a father-son drama, was received with industry praise. Major producers and studio executives made several offers to acquire the material. During the peak of the 2008 financial crisis, Wiik raised over $1million in working capital for his development company, Without You LLC, which owned several screenplays, including Frank and Carnegie. In 2009, Without You LLC was acquired by WR Films Entertainment Group, Inc, a company consisting of senior executives from Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures and Caesar's World. WR Entertainment trades today on the Oslo Stock Exchange Merkur Market under the ticker code WRE-ME.

Wiik led the creative film development of WR. In the process Wiik and his partners increased the firm's market value with the acquisition of the screen, adaptation rights and the eBook rights to Morgan Kane, an international best-selling series of 83 books which had sold over 25 million copies worldwide, as well as acquiring all other books written by author Louis Masterson. The Morgan Kane books constitute one of the most popular franchise properties ever, ranking among the 70 best-selling book series of all time.

Wiik was trained in acting and filmmaking in Australia and Los Angeles and has acted in a number of independent European films and American feature thriller, Timber Falls (2007).
