    You forgot about Spy Game in 2001. Great interview.

    you should try counting the number of times you hum “hmm..hmm” while he’s talking….it’s just weird…

    the only thing I miss about Hell-A is working for Tony. the best.

  6. Dan says:

    I wish you had asked “Does it piss you off that you’ve been so influential, yet so many people fail to recognize it?”

    And actionman, I worked for him, too! Everything about him (and the people he immediately surrounds himself with) is a breath of fresh air.

    Listening to Tony’s voice reminds us that Unstoppable wrapped just before Christmas 2009, so what’s next Tony. Working with him is great. It’s time to start the morning crew meeting with Tony,” good morning girls (sarcasm), if you look at your boards, this is what we are shooting today.”

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
