Lawrence D. Cohen is an American screenwriter and producer, best known for his work on Brian De Palma's Carrie (1976), an adaptation of Stephen King's novel. Following this he scripted a simplified film adaptation of Peter Straub's novel Ghost Story in 1981. His output has been infrequent, but he has helped in adapting two other King novels to television, It in 1990 and The Tommyknockers in 1993. In 2006 he wrote a segment for the TV series Nightmares and Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King.

In 1981, Cohen began to work on a musical adaptation of Carrie (novel), which premiered in 1988 on Broadway to negative reviews and closed after only 16 previews and 5 performances. In 2012, the musical was revived Off Broadway for a limited engagement at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (with Cohen revising the book). The second production was better received than the original.
