When I started in movies, I said, 'I want to be the biggest movie star in the world.' The biggest movie stars make the biggest movies, so [my producing partner James Lassiter and I] looked at the top 10 movies of all time. At that point, they were all special-effects movies. So Independence Day (1996), no-brainer. Men in Black (1997), no-brainer. I, Robot (2004), no-brainer. See more »
