Personal Quote:

A lot of films made me love the movies, everything from Hitchcock (Alfred Hitchcock) to Godard (Jean-Luc Godard). But the ones that really grabbed me were Costa-Gavras' films like Z (1969) and State of Siege (1972). See more »

Trivia:

He was originally going to direct Million Dollar Baby (2004). He was in the middle of directing Crash (2004) when Clint Eastwood asked to direct the film after being offered the lead. Haggis agreed. See more »
