The Hollywood Reporter announced that Melissa Rosenberg has passed a movie industry milestone:
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg got an extra gift this holiday season. With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 continuing its blockbuster run in theaters around the world — $647.3 million in grosses and counting — Rosenberg has become the highest-grossing female screenwriter in Hollywood, with more than $2.56 billion in worldwide revenue.
In the last two weeks, the total grosses for movies Rosenberg has written surpassed those of Linda Woolverton, whose 20-year career had its biggest hit in 2010 with the Tim Burton-directed Alice in Wonderland adaptation.
Despite the successes of Rosenberg and Linda Woolverton, article goes on to talk about the disparity between male and female writers in Hollywood, and that at best baby strides are being made. See the rest on THR.
