Personal Quote:

Trivia:

He is the second director in history to have two films that were not in the same franchise reach a billion dollars at the box office with Aquaman (2018) and Furious 7 (2015). The first director to achieve that feat was James Cameron with Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009). See more »
