Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I never knew they had made a film of "The Blue Lagoon" before (with Jean Simmons in 1948). I hadn't seen it. It was Henry DeVere Stacpoole's book that inspired me; the images seemed so perfect for cinema. So we're not remaking the earlier version, we're doing our version of the novel. See more »


Was to direct _Muppets From Space (1999)_, but was dropped before production began. See more »
