John C. Thomas is an American screenwriter based in California. With his brother Jim Thomas, he wrote and/or was substantially involved with the screenplays of numerous films - including Predator (1987), The Rescue (1988), Predator 2 (1990), Executive Decision (1996), Wild Wild West (1999), Mission to Mars (2000) and Behind Enemy Lines (2001) - and the short-lived TV series Hard Time on Planet Earth.

Born in Needles, California and raised in Bakersfield, John worked as lifeguard, teacher, ditch digger and carpenter, as well as attempting to be a writer. His brother had the idea for the script that would become Predator, in 1983, and asked John for help.[1]
