Phone Booth is a 2003 American neo-noir thriller film directed by Joel Schumacher, produced by David Zucker and Gil Netter, written by Larry Cohen and starring Colin Farrell, Forest Whitaker, Katie Holmes, Radha Mitchell, and Kiefer Sutherland. In the film, a mysterious hidden sniper calls a phone booth, and when a young publicist inside answers the phone, he quickly finds his life is at risk. The film received generally positive reviews from critics and was a box office hit, grossing $97 million worldwide against a production budget of $13 million.

Production was initially stalled by the D.C. sniper attacks that were occurring at the time, but was completed in twelve days including pickups & reshoots. The attacks additionally prompted 20th Century Fox to delay the release of the film, and it opened in the United States on April 4, 2003.
