John Logan Headshot

Writer • Producer

Birth Date: September 24, 1961

Age: 61 years old

Birth Place: San Diego, California

One of Hollywood's most successful screenwriters, John Logan made a name for himself by crafting extensively researched, thoroughly compelling historical epics. After more than 10 years as a respected playwright in Illinois, Logan began his transition to writing for the screen with the Orson Welles biopic "RKO 281" (HBO, 1999) and the Oliver Stone-directed NFL melodrama "Any Given Sunday" (1999). Having attracted the attention of director-producer Ridley Scott, he was brought on to script the Oscar-winning Roman Empire spectacle "Gladiator" (2000), starring Russell Crowe. Logan further cemented his growing reputation with his lauded work on films like Edward Zwick's "The Last Samurai" (2003), Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator" (2004) and Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (2007). After four years without a credit, he returned to pen the hit animated family feature "Rango" (2011) and reunited with Scorsese for the critically-acclaimed family-adventure "Hugo" (2011). Logan's love of history and knack for finding the often ambiguous human story within a larger, epic narrative rightfully made him one of the most sought-after and recognized screenwriters of the new millennium.
