David peoples

David Webb Peoples is an American screenwriter and author who studied English at the University of California and has had a significant impact on science-fiction. His work is known for its moral ambiguity and the award winning Unforgiven is credited for revitalizing the Western genre and Clint Eastwood's career.

Career Edit

Peoples began as a film editor, before co-writing the cult-classic Blade Runner when Ridley Scott (director) and Hampton Fancher (screenwriter) could not work together because of creative differences. Peoples also wrote Soldier (though it was extensively rewritten by director Paul W. S. Anderson), and the highly regarded Twelve Monkeys which was co-written by his wife Janet Peoples.

The screenplay Peoples received the most accolades for took the longest to produce. He wrote Unforgiven in 1976 but it was not produced until 1992. He received Oscar, Golden Globe and British Academy nominations, and won L.A. Film Critics (1991) and National Society of Film Critics (1992) awards for best screenplay.

On the unconventional side Peoples also wrote a comedy called Hero and the fantasy film Ladyhawke (1985). He also wrote and directed The Blood of Heroes (1989).
