Biography

Credited with popularizing the literary mash-up, author, screenwriter and producer Seth Grahame-Smith became a <i>New York Times</i> best-seller thanks to a distinctive horror-comedy take on classic fiction and American history before transferring his mischievous sense of humor to a string of big-screen adaptations, remakes and reboots. Pop-culture obsessive Grahame-Smith first attracted attention with tongue-in-cheek books on erotic cinema, Spider-Man and the wrongdoings of President Bush but became an overnight sensation when he ventured into fiction for <i>Pride and Prejudice and Zombies</i>, a spoof twist on the Jane Austen classic. Adopting a similar formula on <i>Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter</i>, Grahame-Smith then turned screenwriter for both its 2012 adaptation and Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" (2012), and also joined forces with David Katzenberg to create teen comedy "The Hard Times of RJ Berger" (MTV, 2010-11). Grahame-Smith then became the go-to guy for an '80s film revival which included new spins on "Something Wicked This Way Comes" (1983), "Gremlins" (1984) and "Beetlejuice" (1988), and cemented his status in Hollywood by co-writing the script for the 2015 Academy Awards.
