Charles Edward Pogue is a film and television writer who has worked in the sci-fi/fantasy, horror, and thriller genres, and he has also scripted several Sherlock Holmes adaptations (The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and Hands of a Murderer). His most well-known work to date is probably the acclaimed 1986 remake of The Fly; he provided the initial drafts, though his work was heavily rewritten by David Cronenberg, the film's director.[1]

He has expressed his disappointment with the films that were made from his screenplays for Dragonheart and Kull the Conqueror, saying that they were ruined by studio interference.[2] Whereas he believes that his most satisfying achievement was The Hound of the Baskervilles.[2]

From 1997-2001, Pogue served on the Board of Directors of the Writers Guild of America, west.
