Why Does Shane Black Layer Wit, Action, and Christmas in All His Scripts?
Shane Black burst onto the scene in the ’80s as an actor in Predator, but he quickly became a household name writing some of the most lucrative spec scripts in screenwriting history.
He gained quick recognition with Lethal Weapon and followed it up with films like The Long Kiss Goodnight, The Last Action Hero, The Last Boy Scout, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and The Nice Guys…along with Iron Man 3 and The Predator remake.
This list doesn’t include the countless punch-ups and other uncredited work.
Black’s career is one No Film School deeply admires. Instead of becoming a flash in the pan, he’s been able to find longevity in an arena that chews most up and spits them out.
