Personal Quote:

Which project did he feel didn't live up to what he had envisioned?

I wrote the original screenplay to Mindhunters and it was rewritten (dumbed down) by a dozen writers. The finished movie bears very little resemblance to my original work. I don't have a line of dialogue left in the film and very little of my original storyline.

Directed one Oscar nominated performance: Alec Baldwin in The Cooler (2003). See more »

Trademark:
