Although no entry on filmmaker Tom Shadyac appears in the recently-released Encyclopedia of Religion and Film (ed. Eric Mazur, 2010, Santa Barbara: ABC-CLIO), Shadyac has left his mark on the reception history of the Bible with his films Bruce Almighty (arguably a scene in the reception history of the book of Job, and examined in my entry on ‘God’ in the Encyclopedia of Religion and Film) and the somewhat mistitled Evan Almighty (clearly indebted to the book of Genesis, but released after the final draft of my ‘God’ article had been submitted to the editor). In addition to making films, Shadyac is an adjunct professor of communication at Pepperdine University, and is profiled in the spring 2011 issue of Pepperdine Magazine, freely available online.
