Personal Quote:

[on 'Battlefield Earth (2000)_] My script was very, VERY different than what ended up on the screen. My screenplay was darker, grittier and had a very compelling story with rich characters. What my screenplay didn't have was slow motion at every turn, Dutch tilts, campy dialogue, aliens in KISS boots, and everyone wearing Bob Marley wigs. See more »

Trivia:

The original title for Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) was "Robbin' The Hood." Mel Brooks wanted to call it "Robin Hood: The True Story." J.D. didn't like it and came up with the title, Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993). J.D. convinced Mel Brooks to cast Dave Chappelle in the role of Ahchoo. But could not convince Mel to cast Jim Carrey in the role of The Sheriff of Rotteningham. See more »
