He wrote his own screenplay Shrapnel in 2008, which later ended up being produced under the name Killing Season, after receiving generally good praise. The screenplay also won first place in the 2008 Script Pipeline contest and was featured in the 2008 Black List, a list of screenplays deemed ready to produce by select individuals but have not been yet. He also wrote, directed, and edited the short film Rusty Forkblade.
In 2007 he won the Bronze Medal for Excellence at the Park City Film Music Festival for his work on Rusty Forkblade. Later, Daugherty's original screenplay, Snow White and the Huntsman was sold to Universal Pictures for $3.2 million and was later altered by John Lee Hancock and Hossein Amini. Daugherty's idea for Snow White and the Huntsman came from a homework assignment by his professor at New York University to "take a new spin on a classic fairytale". According to the Writer's Guild, he contributed 50%-60% of the screenplay, with Hancock and Amini each contributing 20%-25%.
Daughtery was attached to a third G.I. Joe film for Paramount Pictures. He was also set to write and executive produce Esmeralda for ABC, based on The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, though no new details have since emerged. He contributed material to the 2018 reboot of Tomb Raider.
