Height6' (1.83 m)
ProfessionActor, Producer, Director
1Likes to discover new talent and often uses unknown actors.
2Always casts very attractive women and sometimes models in his films.
3Often uses slow zooms on the lead character.
4His films most always have a staircase leading downwards.
5Quite often writes leading characters as anti-heroes.
1In my spare time during film school I spent three years adapting the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde novella into a screenplay of my own. What I noticed straight away was that the protagonist was the lawyer character, not the monster, and I was surprised that all previous versions I had seen were made that way. Then I realized this was because of marketing and box office value. I decided to be true to the literature and follow the story of Utterson, the best friend and lawyer to Dr Jekyll, in an attempt to be true to the work of R.L Stevenson. The result was that all the film festivals in America said it was best that I had created a 30 minute version of the movie considering the novel isn't even a full length one either.
2I love it when people criticize my films, it makes me try harder and keep going!
3To be a likable actor you have to be a likable person.
4[on filmmaking]: Filmmakers make films, they don't sit in cafés drinking coffee all day. They're out there shooting films. I go and sip my latte when I feel like I've done enough work. And right now I'm working my butt off and I still don't feel like I've done enough?!
