Career

Heisserer's professional screenwriting career was launched with the sale of The Dionaea House to Warner Bros. in 2005,[1] based on an online epistolary story of the same name[2] that he wrote in autumn 2004.[1] He then developed an original television pilot for Paramount Pictures and CBS, and wrote feature projects for Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Warner Bros..[3] In 2007, he sold a pitch to Regency Enterprises and Fox called Inhuman, a supernatural thriller set in Tokyo that combines live action and anime sequences.[citation needed]

In December 2008, Heisserer was hired to re-envision and rewrite the script for the franchise reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, produced by Platinum Dunes.[4] An early draft had been written by Wesley Strick. The script went on to land director Samuel Bayer, actor Jackie Earle Haley, and began filming in May 2009.[5]

He rewrote the prequel to director John Carpenter's 1982 remake The Thing.[6] In April 2010, Heisserer signed on to write Final Destination 5,[7] the fifth film of the horror film franchise.

Heisserer made his directorial debut with the film Hours, starring Paul Walker.[8] Heisserer co-wrote The Conjuring 2 along with the brothers Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes.[9] Heisserer wrote along with artist Felipe Massafera and Colorist Wes Dzioba, the comic book series Shaper.[10]

Heisserer wrote the 2016 film Arrival based on Ted Chiang's short story "The Story of Your Life". Heisserer has said that he was attracted to the challenge of adapting the non-linear story by its emotional content.[11] After the release of the film, he was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 89th Academy Awards.

Heisserer wrote the script for Bird Box (2018), based on the thriller book Bird Box, by Josh Malerman.[12][13] Released by Netflix, the film stars Sandra Bullock and was directed by Susanne Bier.[14]

In July 2017, Heisserer announced that he was developing a science fiction series based on another Ted Chiang story, Liking What You See: A Documentary, for AMC. The series will explore concepts such as beauty, relationships, and advertising.[15]

On 27 September 2017, there was an announcement that Heisserer would write the script for the live-action remake of the sci-fi romance anime Your Name.

Personal life

Heisserer is the son of Margaret L., a senior editor for a publishing company, and Andrew J. Heisserer, a professor of ancient history, of Norman, Oklahoma. Heisserer married television producer/writer Christine Boylan in 2010. His previous marriage ended in divorce.[16]
