Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

The truth is, whether your film is about the great mythological character you have to do right, or it's a little movie that nobody ever heard of, you still approach it like it's the most important thing in the world. But failing goes with the territory. Filmmakers are like gunslingers, and you don't win every duel. See more »

Trivia:

Was originally hired to direct The Defender (2004), but left due to illness during the prep period. Leading actor Dolph Lundgren directed the film. See more »

Trademark:

Long takes that play out in intricately composed master shots (some clock in at over five minutes in length) See more »
