SCREENWRITING

Liam’s children’s adventure novel, The Battle of Boxhill, was optioned by Mount Helix Films and The Eurasia Film Company. He also wrote the screenplay and is continuing to promote the project in the hope that a production company will develop it into a feature animation.

Having co-written The Little English Boy with Hans Potter, Liam adapted the story for the big screen and is now hoping to negotiate an option with production companies in the US and Denmark.

In 2014, Liam was commissioned to write a thriller in the style of No Country for Old Men and, in 2016, he completed a sci-fi thriller (Unparalleled) containing elements of Back to the Future, Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow and Quantum Leap.

 

Later in the year, he and accomplished screenwriter Richard Lasser were commissioned by Wind Waltz Pictures to adapt a true Second World War story into a feature script called The Last Battle.

In 2017, Liam completed his adaptation of Martin Sutton’s award-winning historical novel Lost Paradise into a feature script. 

Commissioned by First Cut Films in Los Angeles, the script received great reviews from Peter Heslop (producer of The King’s Speech) and Emmy-winning screenwriter Michael Hirst.

 

In 2019, Liam wrote a low-budget drama (Menace) about how a young couple’s lives are thrown into turmoil when an unscrupulous brewery installs a nightmare tenant in the pub next to their home.

 

He also rewrote I See Spiders for Emmy-nominated director Richard Bazley. This script has been given excellent reviews by Tom Conti, Jeff Levine, Barry Navidi and Suzi McIntosh and now looks set to go into production.
