Personal Quote:

Twilight is about getting older and relationships - not about a murder mystery. It's about love when you reach a certain age; nothing is in primary colors. See more »

Trivia:

Got the idea for his Bonnie and Clyde (1967) script from his father who had actually attended the separate funerals of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. See more »
