Personal Quote:

That's why I jump from genre to genre, because I always feel I'm doing something new and fresh. I can always fail, but I don't try to repeat myself. I felt, with Bond, doing something so completely different after The Kite Runner (2007) would be refreshing and challenging. That's how I try not to fall into parody myself. See more »

Trivia:

Declined a $500,000 offer to direct a film despite having no income at the time and living from money he borrowed from friends. He didn't believe the script was good and was afraid his reputation as a director would suffer. See more »
