Alfred Gough III (born August 22, 1967) is an American screenwriter and producer.

Early life

Born in Leonardtown, Maryland, Gough graduated from St. Mary's Ryken High School (1985) and The Catholic University of America (1989). Gough attended the Peter Stark Producing Program at the University of Southern California where he teamed up with his writing partner Miles Millar.

Millar and Gough sold their first script while still studying at USC. "Mango", a buddy-cop story where a cop who was allergic to animals was paired with an orangutan, sold to New Line Cinema for $400,000.[1] The film was never made, but it brought the pair valuable publicity.

Career

Al Gough and Miles Millar have become prolific writers/producers. Their feature credits include the action-adventure The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, the hit action-comedy Shanghai Noon, as well as its sequel Shanghai Knights, Spider-Man 2, Herbie: Fully Loaded, Lethal Weapon 4, and I Am Number Four. They also produced Hannah Montana: The Movie, based on the smash hit Disney Channel series.[2] The feature marked the first for the duo's Walt Disney-based production company, Millar Gough Ink.

Gough and Millar's work also spans the world of television. The duo created and served as executive producers/showrunners for the critically acclaimed action-adventure series Smallville, which aired from 2001-2011. Smallville is the longest-running comic book-based series of all time and was the top show in the history of the WB Television Network. Gough and Millar left the series in 2008, after seven seasons, breaking the news of their departure with an open letter posted to a Smallville fan site.[3] In 2010, Gough and Millar filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the WB Television Network, claiming the company had licensed Smallville to its co-owned WB and CW networks for excessively low fees, thereby cutting Gough and Millar out of tens of millions of dollars.[4] The lawsuit was finally settled in May 2013, mere weeks before a scheduled June trial; the terms of the settlement were not made public.[4][5] They developed a reboot of the TV series Charlie's Angels for ABC[6] which premiered in Fall 2011.

In 2010, Gough and Millar were attached to writing and executive producing a film based on the comic book Existence 2.0 for Paramount,[7] as well the screenplay for Monster High, based on Mattel's then-new line of books, webisodes, animation, and toys.[2] In 2015, Gough and Miller created and executive produced Into the Badlands, a martial-arts-based fantasy series for AMC.
