Melissa Rosenberg

  1. Female Spy Film Picks Up Melissa Rosenberg For Rewrites

    Oh Really?

    Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has been hired to help write a spy film featuring a group of women for Summit Entertainment. This is the first we're hearing about it.

  2. Melissa Rosenberg, Drew Goddard Named as Writers on Daredevil, Jessica Jones Shows

    Excelsior!

    Marvel is moving much more quickly on its putative Netflix series than it has on some other TV projects in its history, and has already named writers for two of them, Drew Goddard on Daredevil and Melissa Rosenberg on Jessica Jones. Rosenberg's involvement is particularly exciting as she was involved in a previous effort at getting a Jessica Jones series (pictured above, clocking Doctor Doom with a fire hydrant) to screen, one that sounded like it was shaping up pretty well. (Also, Carol Danvers was in it.)

  3. Rosenberg Says A.K.A. Jessica Jones Show Still Possible, Let me Hoist My Hopes High Once Again

    Excelsior!

    Welcome to this post. Please enjoy this panel of Jessica Jones clocking Doctor Doom with a fire hydrant that she presumably just pulled out of the sidewalk. We're here to talk about the potential series AKA Jessica Jones that's currently somewhere in pre-production television land. There's lots of reasons why it should become a show, and apparently Marvel Entertainment hasn't quite given up on it yet.

  4. To the Surprise Of No One, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Gets Nominated in Every Single Razzie Awards Category

    This Makes Sense

    Tomorrow morning the 2013 Oscar nominations will be announced, but today we're focusing our attention on the Razzies, which have honored (well, "honored") the worst achievements in film since 1981. Judging by the noms alone, Razzie voters seem to have already picked their least favorite film of the year: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which was nominated 11 times in 10 categories. I'd question what the Razzies will do now that there are no more Twilight movies to nominate (THANK. YOU. GOD.), but it's not like there's any shortage of awful movies without sparkly vampires in them. Still, the Razzies should give the franchise a lifetime achievement award or something.

  5. Twilight Made Melissa Rosenberg the Highest-Grossing Female Screenwriter of All Time

    Not all that glitters is gold

    Melissa Rosenberg has beaten screenwriter Linda Woolverton for the title of highest-grossing woman screenwriter of all time. While Woolverton's credits include Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Homeward Bound, Rosenberg has likely edged out her competition with her one film series: Twilight. But it's not just Twilight, although that's got the lion's share of the credit ($2.56 billion worth of credit, according to The Hollywood Reporter). Rosenberg also has significant TV credits under her belt.

  6. AKA Jessica Jones TV Show Will Be Set In The Overall Marvel Universe

    Good News Everyone!

    With Marvel lacking a bit when it comes to their female characters lately (they've just cancelled their last two female solo titles), it's nice to see that not only are one of their heroines getting her own TV show but it won't ignore the rest of the Marvel Universe and pretend to be about something else. AKA Jessica Jones is the show and writer Melissa Rosenberg (the Twilight films) spoke recently about which Marvel characters she hopes to utilize in the series.

  7. Plenty of Room for Luke Cage in AKA Jessica Jones

    Excelsior!

    Among the numerous television projects that Marvel has in some stage of the "getting done" process, there is AKA Jessica Jones, a series about the eponymous superheroine-turned-private detective from the comics series Alias. (No relation to the television show of the same name, in case you were confused.) Melissa Rosenberg has been tapped to adapt the concept, and she's no stranger to either adaptation or genre work. Her writing credits include Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, The O.C., Dexter, a few Twilight movies and even the infamous Birds of Prey television adaptation. Jessica Jones is an awesome character in and of herself, but her role in the Marvel Universe also includes a feisty relationship with Luke Cage, AKA Power Man, that eventually leads to love, parenthood, and marriage, in that order. As supporters of greater diversity in the comics world and in the parts of the comics world that get translated into other media, we'd be remiss if we didn't tell everybody excitedly that Rosenberg has confirmed that Luke Cage is definitely included in her vision for the series.

  8. Prepare, People: Punisher Pilot Production Pushed by, uh… P’Fox

    And So It Begins

    Lets see, we know we've been promised or seen hints of a number of Marvel television shows, including the Hulk and a few other properties, but Frank Castle? Haven't heard much talk about bringing the Punisher back to screens in a while. Until last night, when Fox announced that it will be producing a pilot for an hour long procedural series starring Frank Castle as a New York police officer who moonlights as the vigilante known as the Punisher.
