Shinobu Hashimoto (Japanese: 橋本 忍, Hashimoto Shinobu) (born 18 April 1918) is a Japanese screenwriter, director, producer, and was a frequent collaborator with Akira Kurosawa.
He has won some 16 awards for his writing, including a succession of Blue Ribbon Awards, particularly in the 1960s.
In 2008, Hashimoto's screenplay for I Want to Be a Shellfish (Watashi wa Kai ni Naritai), a post-World War II war crimes trial drama based on the 1959 Tetsutaro Kato novel and made into a film that same year, is being remade and directed by Katsuo Fukuzawa. Yukie Nakama and Masahiro Nakai are the stars, and the music is by Joe Hisaishi.
