Personal Quote:

If you work with a subject matter beloved by a hardcore fan base, then there's going to be a huge amount of discussion of what you've got wrong or right. In some ways you can never please overly obsessive fans, it's just impossible. See more »

Trivia:

Sick and tired of having to explain the significance of the raining frogs in Magnolia (1999), he added the initials W.S. to his name to avoid confusion with indie filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.

Trademark:

Has a reputation for declining to direct follow-ups to his films (i.e. Mortal Kombat, AVP, Resident Evil). See more »

Star Sign:
