Larry Flint which won them the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay as well as a special Writers Guild Award given in recognition of work done for civil rights and liberties. They re-teamed with director Milos Forman on Man on the Moon, a biopic about the legendary comic genius Andy Kaufman for which Jim Carrey received the Golden Globe for Best Actor. Other projects include producing the acclaimed Paul Schrader film Auto Focus and directing the comedy Screwed staring Danny DeVito and Dave Chappelle. They wrote the 2007 film adaptation of the Stephen King short story 1408 staring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.
