One of the most prolific screenwriters in the action/adventure genre, Jonathan started his career writing episodes of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" (1992) for George Lucas and ABC. He wrote Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995), re-conceived from his original spec script "Simon Says". He followed that with Jumanji (1995). His script for the The Saint (1997) was completely re-written by others. After this frustration, he enjoyed a long working friendship with producer Jerry Bruckheimer with whom he collaborated on many projects since 1996. He re-wrote the whole script for The Rock (1996) without credit, which he tried desperately to achieve via WGA arbitration.He did uncredited re-writes on Con Air (1997) and the remake of Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000) and received executive producer credits on both. Armageddon (1998/I), from Jonathan's original idea, was the second time Jonathan had the highest grossing film, worldwide, at the box office. The other was Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995).Jonathan's next projects are Gemini Man (2011) for Disney and The Punisher (2004) for Artisan/Marvel, which he will also direct in late 2002.
