Introduction

As of October 2022, Michael Elliot’s net worth is roughly $1 Million. 

Michael Elliot is a writer and producer from California. He is best known for being the writer and producer behind the movies ‘Just Wright’, ‘Like Mike’ and ‘Brown Sugar’.

 

Early Life 

Michael Elliot’s foray into writing movies began in 1997 after he relocated to Los Angeles and found himself unemployed.

Armed with a computer, a book on screenwriting (purchased at The Writers Store), and a Blockbuster Card, Elliot began teaching himself to write screenplays.

Approximately 13 months later – without the help of an agent or manager – Elliot hatched an unorthodox submission strategy that landed his spec script on the desk of an executive at 20th Century Fox. 

 

Career 

When Elliot shopped his first spec script “Seven Days” which eventually became ‘Brown Sugar’, he was told the script was horrible.
 
Elliot later took it to Magic Johnson Entertainment and, in an odd twist of fate, it was bought seven days after it was first rejected.
 
He is also a former writer for the acclaimed hip-hop magazine The Source. He was an executive producer on the awards show for two years straight (1999-2000).
 
Elliot incorporated an experience that happened while he was working there into a deleted scene from ‘Brown Sugar’ where Method Man went to Sydney’s job, XXL, and pulled out a gun on the editor for putting Jadakiss on the cover instead of him. And, in an odd twist, the editor and Meth’s bodyguards all have guns.

As of October 2022, Michael Elliot’s net worth is $1 Million.

Favourite Quotes from Michael Elliot 

“I feel like, it gives me an edge, the business is tough, the chances of success are like trying to make it in the NBA, there’s a lot of disappointment, there’s just so many reasons to quit.” – Michael Elliot 

“My friend came by and encouraged me to write one more script, I believe that was God. If you listen to that song, you realise where Brown Sugar came from.” – Michael Elliot 

“I feel like you have to be bold, you have to be audacious; I think that when you are bold and audacious, there’s genius in that. There’s a level of self-belief and obviously a belief in God. There was a moment for me when I realised that this business is highly subjective.” – Michael Elliot 

“On one of those days they made love and she says ‘now what are we going to do?’ I wrote that question on a napkin and that became the end of my first act.” – Michael Elliot 

“He shared a story with me about Florence B Price Elementary School and Jackie Robinson Elementary School in Chicago, and their destruction at the hands of Chicago Public Schools. It’s a tragic story that is echoed around the country, where the voices of communities are ignored and politics takes over.” – Michael Elliot
