“I can tell you that working with Ridley Scott is a career highlight and one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had. They say don’t meet your heroes — in the case of Ridley Scott, go ahead, you’ll only revere him more.”

– Michael Green, talking Blade Runner 2 with us.

“The weird thing is, I had never listened to the lyrics until very late in the day in the editing room. When we put it on, in the end, which was not our original plan. I thought, “Fuck! These lyrics. It’s like it was written for the film!” That’s one of those weird things, that’s where the serendipitous nature of filmmaking comes to the front. I don’t know how one is pulled to all these different things. I didn’t do it, it just happened by chance.”

– Terry Gilliam, on the use of a cover version of Radiohead’s “Creep” in The Zero Theorem.

“Nowadays the end would be all over Twitter before we ever got to any movie theater. It really was a surprise to many people who saw it. So that’s kind of a cool thing to think. You can’t do it now. People are expecting it and anxious to ruin the surprise for people.”

– Haley Joel Osment, on how The Sixth Sense wouldn’t be the same if it were released now.

“The most important thing to remember about LucasArts is that it was made up of people who came from all over the world, with all sorts of skill sets, who just wanted to make great games.”

– Matt Bolland, Super Roman Conquest developer, discussing his time at LucasArts.

“If I woke up one day and thought, “Yeah I’m really bored with The Walking Dead, everyday’s starting to become a bit of a chore,” I wouldn’t be on the book. So, it’s a testament to Robert’s [Kirkman] writing skill and how he keeps it fresh that inspires me as well to draw the thing.”
