Tony Gilroy - Rotten Tomatoes

Tony Gilroy



Screenwriter Tony Gilroy debuted as a scribe on a lucrative but uncharacteristic note -- lucrative because the 1992 sports-themed romantic comedy The Cutting Edge (which Gilroy scripted) grossed a respectable 25 million dollars at the domestic box office; uncharacteristic because that film in no way presaged the genres in which Gilroy came to specialize. Time and again, over the following decades, Gilroy churned out scripts for intense variants on the thriller formula -- outings that exhibited a propensity for not only high-ratcheted suspense but literate subtexts and polished dialogue. These included the incest-themed Stephen King melodrama Dolores Claiborne (1995), the medical ethos-tinged suspenser Extreme Measures (1996), and the supernaturally charged, darkly comic thriller The Devil's Advocate (1997). Gilroy's activity surged after the turn of the millennium, when producers tapped him to script the first three installments in the Bourne series of films, adapted from the novels by Robert Ludlum. In 2007, Gilroy debuted as a director, helming his own script for the hotly anticipated legal thriller Michael Clayton (2007). The picture concerned a morally dubious fixer for a major Manhattan law firm (George Clooney), faced with the most daunting moral, ethical, and logistical crisis of his legal career. The film opened to largely positive reviews, and went on to capture Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.
