Matt Charman

Writer

Matt is a screenwriter and award-winning British playwright, whose productions include three world premieres at the prestigious National Theatre.

 

In 2016 he was nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplay ‘Bridge Of Spies’, a Cold War thriller directed by Steven Spielberg and co-written with Joel and Ethan Coen. The film stars Tom Hanks, Alan Alda and Mark Rylance. Previously, he co-wrote ‘Suite Francaise’ (2014) with director Saul Dibb, starring Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas and Margot Robbie.

 

Matt will once again be teaming up with Steven Spielberg and producer Marc Platt to write a feature based on the life of legendary news presenter Walter Cronkite.
