From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Duane Adler is a Hollywood screenwriter, producer, and director most known for his work on dance- and music-driven fare, particularly Save the Last Dance (Paramount Pictures: Julia Stiles, Sean Patrick Thomas) and Step Up (Disney: Jenna Dewan, Channing Tatum). Both of these films set box office records, putting Adler in a unique category – as author of two of history’s five top-grossing dance movies, and of the top two highest-grossing teen romances.
His other screenwriting credits include VH1’s telefilm The Way She Moves, Weinstein Co’s Make It Happen, and Fox Atomic’s Venice Beach (currently in pre-production).
He is co-president, with partner Nian Aster, of Hungry Yak Productions. Their urban drama God's Waiting List (Roger Guenveur Smith, Nicki Micheaux) was a festival hit that marked Duane's feature directorial debut. He was producer on this and The Valley Murder Tapes (Nian Aster).
