Howard Franklin

Writer, Director

Howard Franklin is an American screenwriter and film director. He wrote and directed the (now-cult) '90's comedy Quick Change, starring Bill Murray, Geena Davis and Jason Robards and The Public Eye, a thinly-veiled biography of the tabloid photographer, Weegee (starring Joe Pesci). His other screenplays include: Someone to Watch Over Me (directed by Ridley Scott); The Name of the Rose (starring Sean Connery); The Man Who Knew Too Little (with Bill Murray); and Antitrust, featuring Tim Robbins as a Bill Gates-like software billionaire.
