Russian-born writer, director, producer Vlad Yudin recently wrapped production on the highly-anticipated docudrama, "Generation Iron," a remake of the 1977 docudrama, "Pumping Iron," the box-office smash hit that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name, and also served to popularize the then-niche cult of bodybuilding. This helped to inspire the fitness craze of the 1980's. Jerome Gary, the original producer of the 1977 film is the executive producer for the remake, currently filming throughout the United States. 
Yudin is also writing and developing the screenplay for "Head Smash," currently lead by Sean O'Reilly, publisher of "Cowboys and Aliens." The highly-conceptualized sci-fi thriller is set in the city of "Ares," and centers on an orphan who finds safe haven with a brutal syndicate called "The Horde." The story delivers a well-executed tale of rage, revenge, salvation and love in a city full of corruption, as the orphan, "Smash," struggles to maintain his loyalty to the organization.
Best known for the docu-film, "Big Pun: The Legacy," Yudin directed and produced the critically acclaimed biopic  about legendary rapper, Christopher Lee Rios, better known as "Big Pun." He has also had high praise for "Last Day of Summer," the second film he wrote, directed and produced, starring Nikki Reed (Twilight) and DJ Qualls (Hustle & Flow).
Born in Moscow, Yudin spent much of his childhood between Russia and New York. His love of HOllywood films inspired hi mto become a filmmaker and eventually completed the NYU filmmaking program, where he directed and produce his first series of independent shorts and documentaries.
