Flowers also co-wrote Metro Manilla with director Sean Ellis.

He was commissioned in 2015 to script a biopic about the teenage years of basketball legend Lebron James for Universal Studios.

Frank Ewen Flowers Jr. was born in August 1979 to Frank Sr. and Eve Flowers. He is the grandson of Cayman Islands businessman, Clarence Flowers, a man who rose to commercial wealth from very humble beginnings. Initially, Flowers' family wished for him to go into the family businesses of cement block making, bottled water, real estate and development. Flowers' younger sister, Dara, now understudies her father and two uncles in the gradual preparation to hand over the group of companies to the third generation of Flowers. Since the production of his feature film HAVEN, his family has been outspoken in their support of his career.
