Owen Nicholls

Owen Nicholls is a screenwriter with a Masters in Scriptwriting from the UEA.

His first screenplay – a biopic of the filmmakers Powell and Pressburger – is currently under option to Bedlam Productions, the BAFTA and Academy Award-winning producers of The King’s Speech. His work has appeared in Empire and NME, and earlier this year Reel Love was selected for the Escalator Scheme run by the Writers’ Centre in Norwich, where he currently lives with his family.

His debut novel, Love, Unscripted, was published in August 2019 by Headline.


High Fidelity for the multiplex generation. Owen Nicholls makes it look easy but it’s a smart and funny book, laced with wisdom. A lovely, warm, engaging read.
