Grant Edward Nieporte, born in 1973, is a screenwriter best known for the film Seven Pounds. Nieporte got the idea for the script after having a chat with a man whom he called "one of the saddest people I've ever met in my life". In the behind the scenes vignette found on the Seven Pounds DVD, Nieporte seems to suggest that the man was responsible for the death of seven in a "national tragedy."
