      Coen Brothers, or Wes Anderson.  I like their take on different types of dialogue.

        Coen brothers are brilliant. No Country For Old Men, O Brother Where Art Thou, and Ladykillers remain my favorites.

    Kevin Costner.  Loved what he did with Dances With Wolves (both as an actor and as director) and have seen nothing to change my mind since.  Additionally, I've long felt his outlook on life in a number of areas was strongly compatible with my own, so any movie we worked on together should manage to "come together" with a minimum of "Oh-why-did-I-ever-pick-him" emotions to sour the soup.

    Micahel bay, as I have loved what he has done with Transformers! Fan when I was a child, and now still a fan now because of what he has done. And the special effects are amazing! :-)

      Bay is the man. But I still think Bad Boys is his best movie ever!

    Hmm...tough one.

    I had a screenplay in mind for something that already exists outside film, so assuming that the copyright holder would give the go-ahead...

    I would have said Steven Spielberg at one point, but the latest Indiana Jones kinda crushed my faith in his ability. Or rather, the alien thing did.

    So for now? Maybe Michael Bay or M. Night Shyamalan (hope I spelled that right). It depends on how well M. Night handles the Avatar movie. wink

    You mean there are other directors besides you??? 

    I would choose Francis Ford Coppola, but only because I met him once, and have walked through his spectacular vineyard and olive groves on several occasions.

    I'd have to say Clint Eastwood.Have you seen the outtakes from the Changeling.Instead of shouting ACTION and scaring the bejeezers out of everyone he just says when you ready.

    Oliver Stone. I am just curious to met him and see what he is really like and what his take on the world is.

    I would want the Coen Brothers only if I could be Big Lebowski II: Return of The Dude

    1. Davinagirl3 profile image60

      Lebowski is an all time favorite.

      That would be a personal choice of mine. Lord of the Ring Trilogy is legendary. To be forever enshrined in history.

      My man. I have no words to describe his work in Prestige, except Magnifique. I hope to meet him some day, not in a phony way like fans do, though. DARK KNIGHT RULES, TOO!

      Two experts in the game. And they each have 3 Oscars to show for it.
