Ed Solomon began at 19 as a joke-writer and a stand up comedian. While still a student at UCLA, he became a staff writer on the ABC sitcom Laverne and Shirley. He went on to become a staff writer and producer on Showtime’s It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, an early cable hit that was experimental and groundbreaking in its approach to television comedy.
With writing partner Chris Matheson, he wrote the film Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. The third Bill & Ted movie, “Bill & Ted Face the Music” is in development with a script by Matheson & Solomon and Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter set to reprise their roles.
As a solo screenwriter, Solomon wrote Men in Black. And then co-wrote many other films, including Charlie’s Angels, X-Men (uncredited), and Now You See Me 1 and 2.
His most recent project teamed him with director Steven Soderbergh and HBO for the original interactive long-form branching narrative Mosaic, starring Sharon Stone, which was released first as an app in November 2017, and is now running as a limited-run series on HBO.
Ed is currently writing a second and third project in the branching narrative format for producers Steven Soderbergh and Casey Silver.
