Grisham is well-known for influential adaptations like "The Firm" and "The Pelican Brief," which helped to establish his mass-market appeal and his talent for legal thrillers.

IMDb's writer and producer databases are updated regularly so that it continues to reflect the most recent work of a given individual. Grisham's page changes to include new adaptations and new uses of his work and, in 2015, he was still an active writer whose books were highly sought by Hollywood production firms.
