Bronte Woodard (October 8, 1940 – August 6, 1980) was an American writer best known for penning the adapted screenplay for the hit film Grease. He was born October 8, 1940 in Alabama. He also co-wrote the screenplay for the 1980 Village People film Can't Stop the Music with Grease producer Allan Carr. He also wrote a novel, Meet Me at the Melba.[1] Raised in Atlanta, he died of hepatitis-related liver failure at the age of 39 on August 6, 1980 in Los Angeles, California.[2][3]

Announced unrealized projects[edit]

In 1976, Universal Studios announced plans to make a film of Anne Rivers Siddons' novel Heartbreak Hotel for which Woodard would write the screenplay.[4] However, the novel was not actually filmed until several years after Woodard's death, reaching the screen under the title Heart of Dixie in 1989 with a screenplay by Tom McCown instead of Woodard.[5]
