Personal Quote:

Once my son was diagnosed with cancer, I had this huge amount of pain and anger about how this could happen to the child I loved so much. And I definitely directed that into The War Zone. I wrote it differently than anything I've written. I would rush back to the house while he was in chemotherapy and just write for two hours. I almost felt as if I were channeling it.


For his first venture as a producer, he persuaded director Nicolas Roeg
  • whom he had only met once, for a magazine interview - to see the

play, Insignificance, that Stuart was trying to get the rights to. Roeg came on the play's last night, agreed to direct the movie, and helped Stuart set the project up with producer Jeremy Thomas. See more »
