Personal Quote:

My loves are science fiction in every form, as well as the dark Jim Thompson/James M. Cain type of film noir. Most of my career I see alternating between suspense and SF. There will probably be very little I'll do outside of those genres, since I seem to gravitate so strongly toward them. See more »

Trivia:

The February 17, 1989 draft of the screenplay for Hard to Kill (1990) credits Steven Pressfield & Ronald Shusett & Steven Seagal as writers. Pressfield & Shusett are not credited in the final film and Seagal only received an acting credit. See more »
