Personal Quote:

We're already a cross-culturalized society. I'm always concerned whether my friends in America will be able to understand what we're saying on screen.

Trivia:

Franklin had wanted to do a thriller for children and started out to do a remake of the 1949 Bobby Driscoll suspenser "The Window," which Universal held the rights to. Ultimately the writers abandoned that and ended up writing "Cloak and Dagger.". See more »
