1I don't see why a film like _Stand By Me (1986)_ couldn't work again in this era.
2Tom (Hanks) was an active reader, not an actor saying: 'just send me the offers', but send me the good scripts!
31991: It's really delightful when you make a movie that comes out in February and you can still find it the newspaper in June. It was also a time in movie history, when, if a film opened to fourteen million dollars you felt like the king of the world as opposed to a leper.
4My greatest disappointment so far... I haven't had a chance to make a family movie that I can watch with my daughters.
5Producing documentaries has always been a way to explore the many fascinating corners of the world and learn a vast amount about a subject matter.
6What tends to happen with new studio start-ups, is, the initial financing needed to launch the venture usually haunts the company through its run. And I think that's what happened to Orion.
7I got to know Ted Demme before he went to work at MTV. We had a lot of fun together and Ted gave me a small acting part in a movie he did called The Ref (1994)... He was a force. A guy that spread sunshine where ever he went and he was this amazing filmmaker... So it was very tragic...
8I was fortunate right from the beginning of my career because Jonathan Demme was this great mentor, a partner and an example. He was a person of wide range and enthusiasms and a guy with a great deal of emotional intelligence.
9I'd read the book The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and it was very violent and Jonathan and I needed to go back to work so we were looking around. ...In a series of events Gene Hackman, who was attached, dropped the project and Orion turned it over to us, so we rolled over right into pre-production.
10On The Silence of the Lambs (1991): Doing the '92 awards circuit was fun. We'd been to the Golden Globes and only won Best Actress, so we weren't going into the Oscars as the obvious favorite, but as the night went on -- Best Picture being last -- there were some very pleasant surprises!
11I really, really think the right heartfelt movie with good characters and just people talking has a niche in today's market of special effects. It's just become a tough place to hit. ...But it still happens...
