Birth Place:


The screenplays of scenarist David Peoples are noted for their lack of moral absolutes as can be seen in his script for The Unforgiven, a Clint Eastwood Western that has been credited with helping to bring back the genre. Peoples wrote the script in 1976, but it was not produced until the early '90s. Before becoming a screenwriter, Peoples obtained an English degree from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1982, Peoples co-wrote the script for the cult favorite Blade Runner and penned only two more scripts before having success with The Unforgiven. Later that year, Peoples also wrote the fascinating character study of a reclusive reprobate who saves people from a burning jet and then sees a handsome, opportunistic junkman get all the credit, in Hero. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
