Personal Quote:

[on Frank Darabont's rejected screenplay for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)] I've never actually met Frank Darabont, but I hear he's a lovely guy. Just for the record, the Indiana Jones jumping into the fridge bit is in the Darabont script. And I loved it, which is why I pushed it into the movie! I thought it was a great idea![Jan.2015] See more »


Was unavailable to return to write the Men in Black (1997) sequel screenplay because he was writing another comic book adaption at the time, Spider-Man (2002). See more »


Often writes and/or directs dark, suspenseful dramas (Secret Window (2004), _The Trigger Effect (1996)_, Suspicious (1994), Toy Soldiers (1991), Bad Influence (1990), Apartment Zero (1988)). See more »
