Personal Quote:

There is a sort of theory that you should adapt bad books because they always make more successful films. Don't do masterpieces, because they'll be disappointing. I don't think that. If you take a really good book, then the potential is for a really good film. But you've got to get it right. See more »

Trivia:

He was awarded the Knight Bachelor of the Order of the British Empire in the 2020 Queen's New Years Honours List for his services to Drama. He is playwright in Greater London W11, England. See more »
