Ric Roman Waugh

writer/director/producer Felon, Snitch, That Which I Love Destroys Me, Shot Caller (upcoming)

Ric Roman Waugh has written numerous studio-based feature film screenplays for producers such as:  Jerry Bruckheimer, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, Mark Gordon, Neil Moritz, Barry Josephson, Mark Canton, Jim Sheridan and Nick Wechsler.  This includes his latest screenplay, CURRENCY, which Ric will direct next for producer Steve Golin and Participant Media.

Ric also wrote and directed the critically acclaimed film, FELON, for Sony.  The prison-based drama starred Val Kilmer, Stephen Dorff, Sam Shepard, Harold Perrineau and Nate Parker.  He followed that film up with the dramatic-thriller, SNITCH, which he also co-wrote and directed, starring Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper, Michael K. Williams, Benjamin Bratt, Jon Bernthal and Melina Kanakardes for Participant Media and Summit Entertainment. 

He also recently produced and directed the documentary, THAT WHICH I LOVE DESTROYS ME.  A five-year labor of love, Waugh's cameras capture two Special Operations soldiers' firsthand and uncensored accounts of returning home after fighting in the longest combat campaign in American history only to face a new battle; the effects and stigma of PTSD and reintegration as a whole. 


His upcoming film, SHOT CALLER, which Waugh produced and directed from his own screenplay for Bold Films and Participant Media, will be released in 2017.
