Ziad Semaan

Ziad Semaan has been working as a screenwriter for over a decade.

After gaining representation, he was lucky enough to work on New Line’s adaptation of the international bestseller, FOUCAULT’S PENDULUM by Umberto Eco.


Ziad’s most recent credit was for the action-adventure DEAD MINE, HBO Asia’s first ever original feature production, released last year. More recently, he script edited Daniel Wolfe’s debut feature CATCH ME DADDY which premiered at Cannes Directors Fortnight 2014 and is currently script editing his follow-up feature. He is also developing a eight-part drama, AYITI, set around the 2010 Haitian earthquake with Daniel’s production company among other projects.


Other projects in development include MID AIR, an original sci-fi feature film with PostPanic films and visionary director Mischa Rozema.
