It may be hard to believe for fans of his famously terrifying screenplays, but writer Gary Dauberman first realized his love of film when he viewed the heartwarming classic "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946) at age 13. Dauberman was inspired by how moving the film remained fifty years after it was made. He would channel his love of narrative into aspirations to become an animator for Disney or a comic book artist, before ultimately focusing on the written word. After attending Delaware County Community College for two years, Dauberman transferred to Temple University and graduated in 2002. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Los Angeles to begin a career in show business. He began by working as an extra for Central Casting, but eventually scored a break writing the TV movie "In the Spider's Web" (Sci-Fi Channel, 2007). An even bigger break came in 2009, however, when none other than Sam Raimi and Neil Marshall optioned Dauberman's original script, a body horror story called "Burst." Soon, he was penning a horror spin-off of "The Conjuring" (2013) called "Annabelle" (2014), following the creepy story of a demonically possessed doll. The success of "Annabelle" led to Dauberman being offered the chance to write the script for Universal's sci-fi epic "Crime of the Century."
