After three months of working at a boring tech company, Ross decided to never work a 9-5 again. He started writing screenplays at night.
A Los Angeles native, he’d graduated from UC Berkeley, majoring in English in Literature.Still, it took sixteen screenplays over two years before he got his break. Ross wrote a sci-fi pilot that he got to a family friend who ended up sending it to Doug Liman. Doug’s company, HYPNOTIC, developed the script and he got signed by a major talent agency.
Recently, Ross wrote WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a script that landed on The Black List, and sold in a bidding war to Amazon Studios. Brad Fuller is producing the film, with Justin Dyck directing. He has since been hired to develop a horror movie by Endeavor Content, and has developed projects with Sam Raimi, Kevin Williamson, and Skybound Entertainment. He is currently developing a film for 21 Laps Entertainment and a show for Phantom Four Films, as well as numerous other horror features and television pilots.
Ross loves infusing dark comedy with horror and sci fi and he is motivated to inspire the next generation of writers. He wants to give writers practical guidance while, at the same time, helping them hone their voices.
He is currently represented by WME and Kaplan Perrone.
Ross is new to Script Anatomy, so testimonials will be coming soon!
