Julien Leclercq began his career in 2004 with the production of the short film Transit, in which he explored a retro-future world populated by half-flesh, half-metal beings. The short film got the attention of the producer Franck Chorot and Gaumont, who promptly offered Leclercq a budget of 8.7 million euros to produce his first feature film Chrysalis, the story of a police lieutenant (played by Albert Dupontel) who tries to find his wife's killer in a Paris of 2025. Leclercq returned to reality to undertake the ambitious project of L'Assaut, a film about the hijack of the Paris-Algiers flight in December 1994.

His work includes directing the 2013 film The Informant, producing the 2014 film L'Affaire SK1, and writing and directing the 2015 film Braqueurs.
