Personal Quote:

[when asked if odd people is his speciality]: If so - not because the people are odd, but because it is a story worth telling. And isn't it so, that all movies worth seing, really are about odd people - in one way or another?

Trivia:

In 2003 he signed a deal to direct 3 movies for 20th Century Fox. The first project is supposedly to star Josh Hartnett, while Jennifer Lopez has shown great interest in starring in the second project, titled "Earthbound" it is about a woman who has everything when she suddenly is struck with cancer.
