Personal Quote:

Theaters are always going to be around, and doing fine. With computers and technology, we're becoming more and more secluded from each other. And the movie theater is one of the last places where we can still gather and experience something together. I don't think the desire for that magic will ever go away.

Trivia:

Was offered the chance to direct The Sum of All Fears (2002), but declined. See more »
