Bob Gale (1951)

Type :  

  Summary  

Michael Robert "Bob" Gale is an American screenwriter who co-wrote the science fiction film Back to the Future with writing partner Robert Zemeckis, and the screenplays for the film's two sequels. Gale also co-produced all three films.

  Biography  

 early life
Gale was born in University City, Missouri, the son of Maxine (née Kippel), an art dealer and violinist, and Mark R. Gale, an attorney. As a teen, he created his own comic book, The Green Vomit, using spirit duplication, and also co-founded a popular comic book club in St. Louis. Later, he and his brother, Charles Gale, made his own amateur three-film series parody of the Republic Pictures Commando Cody serials, using the character name "Commando Cus". The last two of these were made in collaboration with his friend the late Richard Rosenberg. (Rosenberg had taken over the series with the third, 1973's Commando Cus vs. Kung Fu Killers, in which Gale made a cameo appearance as the title character without his face-covering helmet, and was working on a fourth at the time of his death.)

Gale received a B.A. in Cinema in 1973 from the University of Southern California, where he wrote fanzine reviews for classmate Mike Glyer's fanzine, and met classmate Zemeckis.

 career
 Film
As screenwriters, Gale and Zemeckis have collaborated on films including 1941, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Used Cars, and Trespass, the last set in East St. Louis, Illinois near Gale's home town.

In 1985, both Gale and Zemeckis were nominated for an Academy Award in honor of their screenplay for Back to the Future.
In 2002, Gale debuted as a feature-film director with Interstate 60. He had previously directed and wrote the 45-minute theatrical release Mr. Payback: An Interactive Movie.

He also wrote the novelization for his movie 1941 and helped develop the arcade game Tattoo Assassins.

 Comic books
Gale has also written for comics, including Marvel Comics' Ant-Man's Big Christmas and DC Comics' Batman.

In 2001, Gale had a short run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil, writing issues #20-25 of Volume 2. Working with artists Phil Winslade and David Ross, they created the story arc "Playing to the Camera." Writer-painter David Mack contributed covers to the run.

In 2008 Gale worked as one of the writers among the rotating writer/artist teams on The Amazing Spider-Man, which at the time, was published three times a month. His issues included #546, #552-554, #558, #562-564.
