Dwight Little, director of Halloween 4, Marked for Death, Rapid Fire, & more has written a memoir called Still Rolling
Over the course of a directing career that has lasted almost forty years so far, Dwight H. Little has brought us some very cool movies, with his credits including The Phantom of the Opera (starring Robert Englund), the Steven Seagal vehicle Marked for Death, Rapid Fire (starring Brandon Lee), Free Willy 2, the Wesley Snipes mystery Murder at 1600, Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, Tekken, and my favorite of the Halloween sequels, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers. He has also directed a whole lot of television, taking the helm of episodes of shows like Freddy’s Nightmares, Millennium, The X-Files, The Practice, 24, Prison Break, Castle, Nikita, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Sleepy Hollow, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Bones, Scorpion, and 9-1-1. Now he has written a memoir called Still Rolling: Inside the Hollywood Dream Factory – and copies can be purchased at THIS LINK!
Still Rolling has a page count of 234 and the following description:
Dwight Little’s Hollywood career includes directing and producing major motion pictures for multiple studios, acclaimed television series and even video games. In this memoir, he takes readers along on a movie-making adventure that is by turns funny and brutally honest. There are many on-set interactions with well-known producers and stars along with detailed descriptions of film shoots from the wilds of India to the banks of the River Kwai. Included are tales from the jails of Madrid to the jungles of Fiji and the cold war streets of Budapest. The work seamlessly connects the Golden Age of Hollywood to the highly successful premium television of today.
Make or break creative battles, Hollywood intrigues, unpredictable studio executives, and temperamental actors are all documented in colorful detail. Whether the reader is an aspiring filmmaker or just a movie lover, this book has it all, including a unique insight into television directing in the new streaming age and 41 photos, many on-set.
This sounds great to me, because I would love to hear stories about working with the likes of Robert Englund, Brandon Lee, Steven Seagal, Michael Myers, and the snakes and video game characters of Anacondas and Tekken.
