Personal Quote:

[on his Hollywood ambitions] I was asked a couple of times to direct something in Hollywood, but so far it wasn't interesting enough to say yes. I would like to make an international movie, but not necessarily in The United States. It's also possible to do it here (in the Netherlands). We'll see. If the right project comes along I'll consider going, but for now I'm happy here. See more »

Trivia:

The triple-mark is not included in the end credits of Grot, De (2001). Some people say this is because this is his first fiction film where he does not have a writing credit. See more »

Trademark:

Often has stylistic references to spaghetti westerns (and other Italian genre movies).. See more »

Star Sign:
