Quotes by Joel Silver
- A lot of movies were influenced by 'Logan's Run,' like 'Minority Report'. A lot of films have those elements in them.

- The only problem is I can't get into PG-13 Land. I just get stuck in R rated movies, which they would love us to make PG-13 movies but I never get there. But I think that you've got to make them different. You've got to switch them up.
