Raised in Hersham, Surrey, he began making student films while studying American History at the University of Kent and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After graduation, he sold his first feature screenplay, Underground, to British producers Jeremy Bolt and Paul Trijbits in 1995.

In 1997, he secured representation in Los Angeles after writing Blade Runner Down, a spec sequel to the film Blade Runner, based on the novel Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human by K. W. Jeter. He then wrote an early draft of The Mutant Chronicles, followed by an adaptation of The 10th Victim from a story by Matt Greenberg, both for producer Edward R. Pressman.

In 1999, after selling the horror treatment Rizen to Universal Pictures and writing an unused draft of Paycheck for Spyglass Entertainment, he began the first of many collaborations with director Alex Proyas when they co-wrote an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death together.

His first produced script was the science fiction adventure TV movie Riverworld, based on the novels by Philip Jose Farmer, for Alliance Atlantis and the Sci Fi Channel. It premiered in March 2003. An adaptation of the comic book Battle Chasers followed in 2004.

In 2005 he wrote and directed his debut short film, Christian.

In 2006 he rewrote the supernatural thriller "Knowing" directed by Proyas and starring Nicolas Cage, then he adapted John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost for Legendary Pictures, which will enter production in 2011, also directed by Alex Proyas and starring Bradley Cooper as Lucifer/Satan. .

In 2007 he rewrote the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still, directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Keanu Reeves, and co-wrote an adaptation of John Christopher's science fiction trilogy The Tripods with Proyas.

In 2010/11 he co-wrote the screenplay "Moses", based on the life of the Biblical prophet and leader, with American writer Michael Green for Lin Pictures and Warner Bros.

In 2008 he wrote, directed, produced and financed his debut feature film, the psychological thriller Exam, which stars Luke Mably, Colin Salmon and Jimi Mistry. The film was completed in May 2009 and received its World Premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival on 19 June 2009. It then screened at the Raindance Film Festival 2009 where it was nominated for Best UK Feature and was subsequently nominated for the Raindance Award (for films made 'under the radar' without industry help) at the 2009 British Independent Film Awards.

The film was released in UK cinemas on 8 January 2010 by Hazeldine Films and Miracle Communications, garnering four star reviews from Empire, Total Film and Little White Lies magazines and on 7 June it was released on DVD and Blu-ray by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Stuart was nominated for "Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer" at the BAFTA Awards 2010 and the film went on to win the Panavision Independent Spirit Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2010 and the Bronze Hitchcock Award at the Dinard Film Festival 2010.

"I busied myself to think of a story which would speak to the mysterious fears of our nature and awaken thrilling horror; one to make the reader dread to look around, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart." In 1794, Captain Walton leads a daring, but troubled, expedition to reach the North Pole. While their ship is trapped in the ice of the Arctic Sea, Walton and his crew discover a man traveling across the Arctic on his own. The man reveals that his name is Victor Frankenstein and begins his tale.

The film is set in present-time United Kingdom in an alternate history. Eight candidates dress for what appears to be an employment assessment exam; they enter a room and sit down at individual desks. Each desk contains a question paper with the word "candidate", followed by a number, from one to eight. The Invigilator, a representative of the company named DATAPREV, explains that the exam is 80 minutes and consists of only one question, but there are three rules: they must not talk to the Invigilator or the armed guard at the door, spoil their paper, or leave the room. If they do, they will be disqualified.

Lucinda's teacher calls for the pupils to finish but Lucinda continues before her teacher takes it off her desk unfinished. Lucinda then goes missing after the time capsule is dedicated, and is found by her teacher, Mrs. Taylor (Danielle Carter), in a utility closet scratching numbers into the door with her fingernails bleeding.

In the year 2009, a meteor shower above Earth claims the life of American astronaut Jeff Hale (Brad Johnson). He awakens inside a jade-green bubble beneath the surface of a body of water filled with them. A mysterious cloaked figure pierces his bubble with a staff pressing it against his forehead, forcefully filling his mind with images to come. Dazed and in pain, he soon finds himself crawling nude onto a beach littered with metal canisters containing unisex clothing. Soon dozens of people from different lands and historical eras emerge from the water, also nude, and distribute the canisters. All understand each other's language, except a lone Neanderthal man, who lacks the capacity for speech.
