Dante Harper started out in independent film, directing The Delicate Art of the Rifle and producing documentaries such as Keven McAlester’s You’re Gonna Miss Me, and Harris Fishman’s Cat Dancers. In 2006, his first screenplay, Dreamland, based on the life of Timothy McVeigh, garnered industry attention and he joined the WGA and began writing screenplays professionally. Since the 2007 strike he’s been continuously employed, working with directors such as Bennett Miller, Marc Forster, Roland Emmerich, Doug Liman, Ridley Scott, Gareth Edwards, and David Fincher. His 2010 adaptation of Hiroshi Sakuruzaka’s All You Need is Kill became the top action script on the Black List that year and sold in one of the largest spec sales of the last decade, reviving what had been a quiet spec market. Over the last few years, he's served as both a new member mentor and a Strike Authorization Vote Captain with the WGA, and served on the Screen Credits Manual review board this last fall and spring. Dante also works to promote emerging international writers as an advisor with Sundance International Screenwriter's Labs. He is currently writing a biopic about the life of Thomas Kinkade, and adapting Who is Jake Ellis? by Nathan Edmonson, for directors Josh and Jon Baker. Originally from North Carolina, he’s been a happily naturalized Los Angeles citizen for 23 years.
