'Twilight's' Melissa Rosenberg Becomes Highest-Grossing Female Screenwriter

According to TheHollywoodReporter:-
Twilight Saga'Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has become the highest-grossing female screenwriter in Hollywood, with more than $2.56 billion in worldwide revenue.


Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg got an extra gift this holiday season. With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 continuing its blockbuster run in theaters around the world -- $647.3 million in grosses and counting -- Rosenberg has become the highest-grossing female screenwriter in Hollywood, with more than $2.56 billion in worldwide revenue.

In the last two weeks, the total grosses for movies Rosenberg has written surpassed those ofLinda Woolverton, whose 20-year career had its biggest hit in 2010 with the Tim Burton-directed Alice in Wonderland adaptation. That Disney release cleared the billion-dollar mark ($1.024 billion) and stands as the ninth-highest-grossing movie of all time. The Lion King, which Woolverton also co-wrote, is now 14th on that list thanks to a recent 3D re-release, with $945.6 million in worldwide revenue. Combined with her other produced work, those movies contribute the lion’s share of Woolverton’s $2.39 billion total.....

All the things I don't like about the movies....I blame her. I don't like Rosenberg, she takes too much credit.
