Jan de Bont
Born: October 22, 1943 in Eindhoven, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands
After the huge success of his directorial debut, Speed (1994), Tri-Star offered him their American version of Godzilla (1998). He obtained a script and worked out a budget. Tri-Star rejected the submitted budget (reportedly over $160,000,000) and De Bont left the project which was temporarily shelved.
Was originally set to direct Minority Report (2002), but Steven Spielberg sacked him and took over as director, probably due to the failure of The Haunting (1999).
