Please Welcome Chris Hauty!

Screen Shot 2018-09-19 at 2.41.43 PMWe’re thrilled to welcome Chris Hauty as our newest client! Hit the jump for everything you need to know about this screenwriter-turned-novelist:

Chris Hauty was born in San Antonio, Texas, and is a graduate of Reed College. He began his professional writing career with “Don Coyote”, a contemporary interpretation of Cervantes’ “Don Quixote” with Jonathon Lynn attached to direct. Projects in the family film genre followed, including Disney’s “Homeward Bound: Lost In San Francisco”. To broaden and further define himself as a screenwriter, Hauty wrote the original screenplay, “Arena”, a dark gladiator epic. Subsequent credits include “Moby Dick” at Dreamworks Animation, “Beautiful Killer” at Universal Pictures with Jessica Alba attached, “Land of Legend”, a Viking saga at Walden Media with Renny Harlin set to direct, “Vigilante” at Studio Canal with Ed Burns to star and direct, and “Colosseum” at Icon Pictures, with Mel Gibson to direct. He sold the pitch for “The Eternals”, a supernatural thriller set on a college campus, to CBS Films. Recent produced credits include “Never Back Down”, directed by Jeff Wadlow and starring Djimon Hounsou and “Sniper: Ghost Shooter” staring Billy Zane for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

His debut novel DEEP STATE introduces Hayley Chill, recently mustered out of the Army to join the White House as an intern, where she soon becomes aware of a plot against the president’s life – and is pitted against the killers until the stunning reveal at the end. We’re happy to share that this book, along with a followup titled COUNTER MEASURE, has sold to Emily Bestler Books and will be published in Fall 2019!
