Despite taking home the Academy Award last year for Best Original Screenplay, David Seidler's writing credits are nowhere near as impressive as you'd imagine for an Oscar-winning writer of his age. The oldest ever winner of the Original Screenplay Oscar had found himself mostly writing TV movies in recent years, and his most notable credit came back in 1988 with Francis Ford Coppola's "Tucker: The Man and His Dream." But winning such a big award for "The King's Speech" opens a lot of doors, and it makes sites like this one pay attention to what the writer's next project might be.
