Tian Zhuangzhuang (Chinese: 田壮壮; born April 1952) is a Chinese movie director, producer and actor.

Tian's early career were mainly avant-garde documentary movies such as On the Hunting Ground (1985) and The Horse Thief (1986). His movie The Blue Kite (1993), was so controversial he was forced to exile from the movie business.[1][2] He later directed The Go Master (2006) and the historical action movie The Warrior and the Wolf (2009).
