Miles Millar (born c. 1967) is a British[1] screenwriter and producer. Miles is best known for co-developing and writing the long-running Superman-inspired television series Smallville, alongside his partner Alfred Gough.

Early life and career[edit]

Millar was educated at Claremont Fan Court School, and is a graduate of Christ's College, Cambridge, where he was Chairman of Cambridge University Conservative Association.[2]

Millar attended the Peter Stark Producing Program at the University of Southern California where he teamed up with his writing partner Al Gough.

Millar and Gough enjoyed early success with a script they wrote while studying at USC. Mango, a buddy-cop story where a cop who was allergic to animals was paired with an orangutan, sold to New Line Cinema for $400,000. The film was never made but it brought the pair valuable publicity.[3]

Career[edit]

Miles Millar along with his partner Al Gough are prolific writers/producers. Their feature credits include the action-adventure The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, for director Rob Cohen, the hit action-comedy Shanghai Noon, starring Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson and Lucy Liu, as well as its sequel Shanghai Knights, directed by David Dobkin, Spider-Man 2, starring Toby Maguire, Herbie: Fully Loaded, starring Lindsay Lohan, Lethal Weapon 4, starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover and the recent I Am Number Four, produced by Michael Bay.

Millar and Gough's work also spans the world of television. The duo created and served as executive producers of the critically acclaimed action-adventure series Smallville. It is the longest-running comic book-based television series of all time, and was the No. 1 show in the history of the WB Television Network.

They produced Hannah Montana: The Movie, based on the smash hit Disney Channel Series, starring teen phenom Miley Cyrus. The feature marked the first for the duo’s Walt Disney-based production company, Millar Gough Ink.

Millar and Gough are currently writing and executive producing Existence 2.0 for Paramount, as well the screenplay for Monster High, based on Mattel's line of books, webisodes, animation, and toys which is being produced by Hairspray team Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

They developed a reboot of the classic TV series Charlie's Angels for ABC which premiered in fall 2011 and was cancelled after one season.
