Kevin Jarre (August 6, 1954 – April 3, 2011) was an American screenwriter, actor, and film producer.
Jarre was born in Detroit, Michigan, to actress Laura Devon, who subsequently married film composer Maurice Jarre in the mid-1960s, and hence was the adoptive half-brother to French composer Jean-Michel Jarre.
Of his more well-known film scripts include Rambo: First Blood Part II, Glory, and Tombstone. Jarre wrote the screenplays for The Mummy and The Devil's Own as well, while also producing The Jackal. He was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay and a WGA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for writing Glory.
