I didn't really want to do another sequel. I go to those movies, and I just sort of enjoy them like a viewer.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:58]
I haven't seen Clones, which has been during this period when I haven't seen much of anything, but I did see Phantom Menace, and see my feelings about it - see, first of all, I think that when you make a lot of movies, your attitude about the movies changes.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:04]
I loved Alien, and I loved Carrie, and I loved The Exorcist - those were big movies for me. They were just brilliantly done, and unusual, and they all took horror to some new place.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:12]
I mean, I really liked those guys and the experience of doing Raiders was really good for me, but I did not really want to be involved - I only did Jedi, as I really owed George a favor.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:17]

The great thing about Stephen is that he sees the movie as a separate thing, I think. He wants it to capture the essence of the book, and if he feels that's been done, then he's not too particular about the details. I think that's why he's happy.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:58]
The kind of pace that you want to use in a Western - just to acknowledge the land in the distance that everyone has to travel, and the way things develop sort of slowly - it's almost the antithetical of what's currently going on in the movies, you know.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:06]
What you hope for, like Unforgiven did a lot to give you a chance to do it again sometime.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:20]

You're not too smart, are you? I like that in a man.More Lawrence Kasdan [08/02/2011 07:08:46]
