David Twohy

Director

[On what drew him to sci-fi]: "You know, just because as a writer/director it is a big canvas for me to paint on — no rules and regulations. You do a drama and you are limited by the rules of reality and in science fiction you create your own reality. Some people find that daunting, I find it challenging. It’s just a big ass canvas to work on."
