The steps could now be heard just a few feet away from the other side of the door. NOW! I unlocked it, flung it open, and screamed like a maniac, “AHHH!” as I wound up the machete over my shoulder, ready to swing it down and decapitate the intruders…uh, well, if need be!
Right in front of me, with bug-eyes and screaming even louder than me “AHHHHHH!” were two females, terrified out of their minds! There stood my wife Jacqui’s friend Ildiko, and her eight-year-old daughter Drew Barrymore! Yeah, that Drew!
I almost decapitated poor Drew, who was screamin’ in fear of the crazy wild man about to swing this frightening machete down on her. She looked as terrified as when we had all seen her famous scream upon meeting Spielberg’s E.T. just a few months earlier on our movie screens! Sorry Drew.

“Yo Bubba, can we try that again…except this time try not to kill the guy!” I remember giving that direction to Bubba Smith on the set of Blue Thunder in 1984. I was teasing him about rough-housing a stuntman bad … Continue reading
When I heard about the Cowboys & Aliens project, my first thought was “Wow, what a pitch that must have been!” Talk about a high concept title and certainly an unusually daring idea. So imagine being a fly on the … Continue reading
Raising indie financing for movies is so very difficult and time consuming. It took me 3 years to raise $1,250,000 for my first feature RETRIBUTION and I outline that journey in my memoir. I was amazed to read that scammers … Continue reading
So let’s get this straight. The right-wing Republicans strong-armed by the Tea Baggers want to make whatever irrational mindless changes regardless of the harm to the country and to the world? They basically want to sabotage America so it reflects … Continue reading
