Jeff Howard

As a child, Jeff Howard was kept up at night by the branches of a nearby tree blowing in the wind, and tapping his window like the yellowed fingernails of a witch. Years later, he made a career reliving his childhood terrors.

Jeff HowardThat childhood home was a gigantic family-built house in western Maryland, alone on a mountain, deep in a forest. From there, he went onto become a history major at college in Baltimore, which led directly to becoming a pastry chef. And while baking, he sold two studio screenplays, a comedy and a biopic. Only after the second sale did he move to L.A., just in case it was a fluke. 

He’s known for co-writing movies like Oculus and Gerald’s Game, and as a Supervising Producer on The Haunting of Hill House and Executive Producer on the forthcoming Midnight Mass and Resident Evil. His lesser-known hobbies include writing and producing historical programming for History Channel and TLC, among others. He also recently sold an action-comedy to Screen Gems

He recently finished work on a movie Amblin will produce, with Alexandre Aja (Crawl, High Tension) to direct. It’s a haunted house horror written in Control Tech, enabling the audience to make choices for the characters. He has promised himself that this is the last 344-page screenplay he’ll ever write. 

He is repped by Verve and Brillstein and lawyer Joel Vanderkloot, and you can find him on Twitter @jeffreyhoward33.
