Personal Quote:

Most treasure hunt movies take place abroad and in the past, which from the audience standpoint means laws are different, rules are different, the people in the third world can get shot in bunches and that's okay. But we couldn't shoot our own cops, our own FBI. We couldn't have the public get endangered. So suddenly we had all of these restrictions that made it much harder to do an action film. See more »

Went to Beverly Hills High School, the same high school as Angelina Jolie, Michael Klesic, Nicolas Cage, Corbin Bernsen, Lenny Kravitz, David Schwimmer, Breckin Meyer, Jonathan Silverman, and Richard Dreyfuss. See more »
