 Drew Goddard Biography

Drew Goddard started his career as a staff writer for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel," receiving a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation for the former. In 2005, he joined J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot team, where he wrote for both "Alias" and "Lost," winning— along with the "Lost" writing staff— the Writers Guild of America (WGA) Award for Best Dramatic Series. In 2006, during its third season, Goddard became the co-executive producer of "Lost."

Goddard wrote his first feature in 2008, "Cloverfield," directed by Matt Reeves and produced by J.J. Abrams. "Cloverfield" made $168 million on a $25 million budget. Empire named it the fifth best film of 2008, and the film then went on to win the year's Saturn Award for "Best Science Fiction Film".

Next came Goddard's directorial debut, "The Cabin in the Woods," which he co-wrote with Joss Whedon. "The Cabin in the Woods" was featured on Metacritic's best films of 2012 list, in addition to earning a 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film would eventually go on to win the year's Saturn Award for "Best Horror or Thriller Film", as well as garnering Goddard Saturn's "Filmmaker Showcase Award".

In 2013, Goddard— in addition to Matthew Michael Carnahan and Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof— wrote the screenplay for the film "World War Z" starring Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster. The film has grossed $540 million on a $190 million budget. As a result, in June 2013, Paramount announced that it was moving ahead with a sequel.

Goddard wrote the film adaptation of Andy Weir's debut novel "The Martian," initially with a view to directing it himself for 20th Century Fox, but was forced to drop out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.

In December 2013, Marvel officially announced that Goddard will be the executive producer and showrunner for a Daredevil TV series that will be produced by Marvel Television and broadcast on Netflix in 2015, while Sony Pictures also announced that Goddard will write and direct a "Sinister Six" film. In May 2014, Goddard withdrew from showrunning duties on the "Daredevil" TV series. In February 2015, after the deal between Marvel and Sony to share the rights to "Spider-Man" was announced, it was reported that Goddard was in talks with Sony to helm the new "Spider-Man" reboot film set for release on July 28, 2017. In May 2015, Goddard published an e-book novelization of the "Daredevil" TV series entitled "Daredevil - The Man Without Fear."
