[in 2007] I like to think of myself as a very young old person. But you start thinking, ‘How many years am I going to have to be productive?’ Especially in our business, youth is so stressed. You start thinking, ‘How many more movies am I going to get to make?’ Maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll make five more.

Stand by Me (1986) was a unique directing experience because ideas came from everywhere. Doing a period piece about the world of childhood is an adventure, each day on-set; people from the crew threw their own childhood memories into the production.

[on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Carroll O’Connor, who played Archie Bunker] Every week, we came up with a little play, and the collaborateness, and the way that Norman Lear allowed us all to contribute. That was the most fun, and what I’ve learned from Carroll O’Connor [as an actor] has held me in very good stead.
