Screenwriter, Novelist


I've had five movies produced from my screenplays, most recently WHAT IF — also known as THE F WORD.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Rafe Spall, and Megan Park. 

When Wallace meets Chantry at a party, they both feel that immediate spark of connection. Conversation flows. Jokes fly back and forth. They get each other. But Chantry has a boyfriend. Not just a boyfriend, a long-term, live-together seriously committed relationship.

So, they decide to be... friends.

And maybe that's for the best. Wallace is still reeling from an epic break up and the friendship just seems less messy all around. But the more they get to know each other, the blurrier things between them get. Neither of them wants to be unethical or sketchy or dishonest. They both want to do the right thing. But the truth is you can do the right thing... and still lose the person who just might be the love of your life.

WHAT IF is a frank, funny, thoroughly modern comedy about love, chemistry, heartbreak, relationships, friendship, and the kind of once in a lifetime connection that makes the mess worth it.

Directed by Michael Dowse, WHAT IF won the Canadian Academy Award and the Writers Guild of Canada Award for the screenplay written by Elan Mastai.

Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan star in a sparkling, old-fashioned rom-com. Sparkling screwball dialogue and surprising star chemistry make this old-school rom-com a late-summer delight
