Miles Millar

Miles Millar (born c. 1967) is a British-born screenwriter and producer. With writing partner Alfred Gough, he wrote the Jackie Chan vehicles Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights. The pair have also worked on several superhero-themed projects. They created and produced the show Smallville on the WB network, and contributed to the screenplays of Spider-Man 2 and Iron Man. Millar and Gough also created the Aquaman pilot. His most current production is I Am Number Four starring Alex Pettyfer as the titular character.

Millar was educated at Claremont Fan Court School and is a graduate of Christ's College, Cambridge where he was Chairman of Cambridge University Conservative Association. He is also a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts from the same The Peter Stark Producing Program as his writing partner Alfred Gough.

Millar and Gough enjoyed early success with a script they wrote while studying at USC. “Mango", a buddy-cop story where a cop who was allergic to animals was paired with an orangutan, sold to New Line Cinema for $400,000. The film was never made but it brought the pair valuable publicity.

Smallville

With writing partner Alfred Gough, he created Smallville. He is one of Smallville's executive producers and has written many episodes. Some episodes Millar has written (usually with Gough) are: Pilot, Metamorphosis, Zero (story), Crush, Tempest, Vortex (story), Lineage, Rosetta, Exodus, Exile, Memoria, Covenant, Crusade and Reckoning (story). Millar has also directed some episodes, such as Memoria.

On April 2, 2008, Millar along with his Smallville partner Al Gough sent an open letter to a Smallville fansite that they were no longer producing and writing for the show. Their replacements as showrunners (co-executive producers Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson) are not named among the list of colleagues that Gough and Millar thank in their letter.

Post-Smallville

Millar has joined the writing team for ABC's Charlie's Angels remake and is currently developing a script for the pilot alongside his fellow Smallville executive producer, Alfred Gough.
