Shane Black Biography

Considered one of the pioneer screenwriters of the action genre, Black made his mark with his Lethal Weapon (1987) screenplay. He also collaborated on the story of the sequel, Lethal Weapon 2 (1989). Each successive script he turned in had a higher price attached it, from The Last Boy Scout (1991) to The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), and in between a re-write on the McTiernan/Schwarzenegger Last Action Hero (1993) script.


Shane Black Trivia

The $1.75 million he received for his screenplay for The Last Boy Scout (1991) was the highest to date in 1990. He then topped it when he sold the script to _The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) _ for over $2 million a few years later.

Brother of Terry Black

Five of his screenplays begin with the letter "L".

After being the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood, he disappeared as a writer in the late 90s. He recently admitted he withdrew due to pressure and a growing contempt for his own commercial, action-packed material. He is now writing and directing a more character-driven film, Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang (2005)_

Shared an apartment with future successful screenwriters like Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad (1987), Night of the Creeps (1986), RoboCop 3 (1993)) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black (1997), Charlie's Angels (2000), Levity (2003)). They called their place the Pad O Guys and considered themselves a fraternity for the ultimate movie buffs by staging and dissecting John Woo fight scenes in the front yard at three in the morning.

Was 22 when he sold the Lethal Weapon (1987) screenplay.

After a young Joe Carnahan sent him some writing samples Black wrote a very inspiring letter back, complimenting his writing and encouraging him to move forward with it. Carnahan later went on to write and direct Narc (2002).

His two favourites screenwriters are Walter Hill and William Goldman.

The sparse side of his writing style is inspired by Walter Hill, the commentary bits on the world he's created inspired by William Goldman, and his mysterious tone is borrowed from Raymond Chandler.
