The film world mourns the loss of Gregory Allen Howard (1952-2023): The American screenwriter and producer died in Miami on January 27 at the age of 70 after a short illness. His spokesman for The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this. Among other things, the screenplays of the films “Against Every Rule” (2000) and “Harriet – The Road to Freedom” (2019) came from Howard’s pen.

Gregory Allen Howard was born in August 1952 in Norfolk, Virginia. After attending college at Princeton and earning a degree in American history, the American moved to Los Angeles in his mid-20s to start his writing career.

In the years that followed, Howard worked as a freelance writer and contributed to a number of television shows, including the 1990s FOX series True Colors. Stage plays were also part of Howard’s work.

Then came two projects that made Howard famous: the screenplay for a biographical film about the famous boxer Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) and the script for the real-life sports film Against Every Rule, starring Denzel Washington (68). . The latter became a box office hit and grossed more than 100 million US dollars. One of Howard’s last projects was the historical film “Harriet – The Road to Freedom” with Janelle Monáe (37), which was nominated for several Oscars.
