Craig Mazin is an American screenwriter, director, and labor leader. He was born in 1971 in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated with a degree in psychology from Princeton University in 1992. He began his entertainment career in marketing; he was an executive with the Walt Disney Company in the mid-90's, responsible for writing and producing campaigns for studio films.

As a screenwriter, his credited work includes Senseless, Rocketman, and Scary Movie 3. Other projects include the upcoming movie Opus, an animated collaboration with cartoonist Berkeley Breathed. He has worked almost exclusively for Dimension Films and Miramax Films since 2000.
