FILMS ON/AROUND WRITERS

Hi Everyone! This is a comprehensive list to compile all films that are either based on a writer(s), have a writer(s) as an important character in the film, or are based on the process of writing. Feel free to get in touch, if you have more films that can be added to the list.

P.S: I have considered poets, narrative authors, journalists who write, scriptwriters, playwrights, and other forms of popular writers, including digital and internet writers, as 'writers' in this category to make this list as wide as possible about the process of writing.
