Behind the Screen: Getting to Know Dan Mazeau

DAN MAZEAU grew up in Santa Rosa, CA and majored in physics at UC Berkley before enrolling in the MFA screenwriting program at UCLA. There he wrote a family fantasy “The Land of Lost Things” and the script was set up at Nickelodeon/Paramount, with Arnold Kopelson producing. Hired by Dan Lin and Warner Bros. to adapt “Jonny Quest,” he was named one of Variety’s “10 Screenwriters to Watch” in 2008 and the script was on the Blacklist that same year. In 2012, he wrote WB’s “Wrath of the Titans.”

Other projects include “The Flash” for Warner Bros., and Doug Liman’s “Untitled Moon Project” for Dreamworks and Pararmount. Dan completed some production rewrites on “Men In Black 3” last year and is currently adapting the Japanese Manga “Bleach” for WB and writing two projects for director Shawn Levy.
