He wrote the 2005 children's novel Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth, a prequel depicting J. M. Barrie's villain Captain Hook, the nemesis of Peter Pan, when Hook was a youngster. Earlier, Hart wrote the screenplay to the Steven Spielberg feature film Hook which functioned as a sequel to Barrie's original story.

Hart also wrote the screenplay adaptation for Crisis in the Hot Zone, but the movie never materialized.

He did the first draft screenplay of Atlas Shrugged, which was to be fully developed by director Randall Wallace. Hart didn't write any further drafts and Wallace didn't end up directing. Recently it has been announced that screenwriter James V. Hart wrote an adaptation of The Sirens of Titan, which Kurt Vonnegut approved of before he died.

Personal life

Hart is the son of Albert Hart and Alice Hart. He has one brother, David. He studied film and graduated from Southern Methodist University in 1969. He lives in New York with his wife. Their two children (born in 1980 and 1983) are also writers.
