I did Awakening to life for Miramax and Harvey Weinstein. I went through hell there but it was a trial by fire. I didn’t realize it too much at the time but I started my career with the biggest monster that ever existed. I was with him all the time when he said crazy things but it built me ​​up because I was soft.

I like to play basketball but if someone nudges me, I react differently. Harvey, clearly, nudged me. So it created a warrior mentality in a sweet kid who comes from a sweet, loving family. But at Miramax, I thought my career was over.

My representatives told me: Miramax owns your rights as directors. You can’t realize anywhere else “. At that time, contracts were crazy. Miramax had some very tough ones. But by a happy coincidence, they didn’t have my handwriting. It was an error by their legal department. So I said, ” I’ll write the best possible scenario to get me out of here “.

I sat down, I looked at posters of Sea teeth, Alien, The Exorcist and Poltergeist on my wall saying to myself: I will write oneI love them “.

I got into genre cinema and suspense for the first time and it went on. I was having so much fun, I had ideas all the time.
