Personal Quote:

[on his script for Snake Eyes (1998)] It had a different ending, yep. And I'm trying to remember what the original ending was... [Gary Sinise's character] didn't die, Nicolas Cage's character saved him at the end. It's not uncommon to change things. It didn't end up that much different, it's just that they wanted the bad guy to get his comeuppance. So he did.[Jan.2015] See more »

Trivia:

In an interview, he claimed that one of the things that inspired him to write movies was the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark in which the buildup for a bull whip and scimitar fight ends up with Indy shooting the swordsman. Ironically, this scene was not conceived by the writer, but was the result of an offhand remark during shooting. See more »

Trademark:

Often writes big-budget action-adventures (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), War of the Worlds (2005), Spider-Man (2002), Mission: Impossible (1996), Jurassic Park (1993)). See more »
