The film started life in 2008 when "Trumbo" screenwriter John McNamara was looking for work at the end of a Hollywood writers' strike. A friend spotted a biography of Trumbo on his bookshelf and suggested the story would make a great movie.The practice was widely seen to have ended in 1960, when director Otto Preminger revealed Trumbo wrote the screenplay "Exodus" and Kirk Douglas made public Trumbo's work on "Spartacus"."Trumbo" director Jay Roach, who has made comedies like "Meet the Parents" as well as political stories like HBO's "Game Change," said the combination of Trumbo's skill, character and unique experience drew him to the project.
