However, he got his big break when he sold his script for ''Continental Divide'' to Creator/StevenSpielberg, which drew the attention of GeorgeLucas who commissioned him to write the screenplay for ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' and then later on to finish the screenplay for ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and write the one for ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
