David Loughery is a motion picture screenwriter who specializes in psychologically-driven action films. Educated at The Iowa Playwrights Workshop, Loughery found a fitting collaborator in director Joseph Ruben, who helmed the sci-fi fantasy "Dreamscape" in 1984 from Loughery's script and would go on to make three other films written or re-written by Loughery. Two of these, '87's "The Stepfather" and '93's "The Good Son," would contain themes of domestic unrest to which Loughery would later return in such later works as '08's "Lakeview Terrace" and '09's "Obsessed." Loughery collaborated with William Shatner on the Shatner-directed '89 film, "Star Trek: The Final Frontier." In the '90s, Loughery adapted a pair of classic tales for the big screen, '93's "The Three Musketeers" and the '95 Tom Sawyer adaptation, "Tom and Huck." In the '00s, Loughery stretched further by picking up executive producer credits for two of the films he wrote: "Lakeview Terrace" and "Obsessed"
