After a successful career in Hollywood as a producer, where he most notably developed and produced FIGHT CLUB for Twentieth Century Fox (starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton) and Executive Produced UNDER SUSPICION for TF1 (starring Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman), Australian-born Ross Grayson Bell went on to find success as a screenwriter in London where he set up the Scouser-made-good story of Barry Cox at BBC Films, I’D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING IN PERFECT CANTONESE, and his adaptation of Tom Spanbauer’s novel, THE MAN WHO FELL IN LOVE WITH THE MOON, landed him on the “Brit List” of best unproduced screenplays.
In 2009 Ross returned to Australia to take up a position as the Head of Screenwriting at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School. In addition to his focus on industry liaison at the school, he convened numerous panels at festivals and conferences around the country.
In 2014 Ross was senior judge, and delivered the keynote address, at the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards. Most recently Ross was commissioned to adapt Susan Duncan’s bestselling memoir, SALVATION CREEK, which was selected for Screen NSW’s Aurora Film Development Program in 2013. He remains active as a speaker, producer, screenwriter and script consultant.
