Gus Van Sant Jr. | Gus van Sant
5' 9" (1.75 m)
Did You Know?
When asked "Why in the hell would you want to do a shot-by-shot remake of Psycho in color?" He serenely replied "So no one else would have to."
Van Sant had planned to make a film about artist Andy Warhol
with River Phoenix
starring as the young Warhol, but plans were scrapped after Phoenix's death.
His end credits are often run over film footage (i.e. home movies in 'Drugstore Cowboy', ice skating in 'To Die For', an incoming storm in 'Elephant') instead of the usual solid black. A notable exception is 'My Own Private Idaho'.
