Early life

Norman graduated in 1964 with a M.A. in English Literature from the University of California.[1]


After working for Leonard Stern, David Suskind and Daniel Melnick, Norman wrote several features and television projects, including the TV movie The Challenge and an episode of the Mission: Impossible TV series. Other screenwriting credits include the films Oklahoma Crude (which he would later adapt into a novel), The Killer Elite and The Aviator. In 1995, he was one of several writers hired to rewrite Cutthroat Island, at the behest of director Renny Harlin.[2]

With Tom Stoppard, Norman won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay at the 71st Academy Awards for his screenplay of Shakespeare in Love; the pair were also nominated for a BAFTA and received the Silver Bear for an outstanding single writing achievement at the 49th Berlin International Film Festival.[3][4] He also shared a Best Picture Oscar for the film as co-producer. The original idea was suggested to Norman in the late 1980s by his son Zachary.[5][6]
