Charles Edward Pogue
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.
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. Whereas he believes that his most satisfying achievement was The Hound of the Baskervilles.
From 1997-2001, Pogue served on the Board of Directors of the Writers Guild of America, west.
