Personal Quotes (1)

"It's folly for studios to say we're only going to make a movie we know how to market. The problem with marketing is that it's based on what's worked in the past. But audiences want freshness and new ideas, which is all about the future. If a studio is unwilling to be a home for fresh ideas or daring films, they're ultimately not going to be competitive, because the top talent is going to go somewhere else." (August 2006)
