Bill Paxton. In 2013, Flowers revisited Sundance with METRO MANILA, which he co-wrote for director Sean Ellis.

As a screenwriter, Flowers scripted a biopic about the high school years of LeBron James, which recently wrapped production at NBC/Universal. He also co-wrote the Bob Marley biopic for Paramount which is slated to shoot this fall. Frank E is currently attached to direct THE BLUFF with the Russo Brothers' AGBO and Cinestar, which will reunite him with actress & producer Zoe Saldaña.
