Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

(On The MacKintosh Man (1973)) I was being sued by Warner Bros. They signed me for a screenplay, I was mad because they sold Hickey & Boggs to United Artists for what seemed to me to be a great deal of money and instead of making it themselves. Also no further remuneration to me... I decided to forget about the script I owed them on general principle and a couple years had gone by, year and half.... See more »

Trivia:

Originally planned for his Streets of Fire (1984) to be the first in a trilogy of films centering on the character of Tom Cody, played by Michael Paré, but the film's box office failure put an end to that project. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently works with character actors James Remar, David Patrick Kelly, Brion James, and Ed O'Ross. Frequently casts actors Bill Paxton and Stoney Jackson in minor roles (e.g. Streets of Fire (1984) and Trespass (1992)). See more »
