Walter Hill Net Worth $20 Million Dollars

Walter Hill Net Worth: Walter Hill is an American film director that has a net worth of $20 million dollars. He’s composed and co-written many screenplays and has produced and directed movies since 1975. Hill became a picture buff for an early age, and mentions the very first picture he recalls seeing as being Song of the South. He later described his flavor as “…juvenile. I enjoyed experience, westerns, but I enjoyed everything…” Hill got work in Los Angeles studying historic documentaries made by an organization that has been linked with Encyclopedia Britannica through a buddy, however he was more enthusiastic about the entertainment industry so he started writing scripts and developed the impulse to direct at the same time. The script, however, was respected at Warner Bros. who subsequently requested Hill to pitch some other jobs to them. Hill created a detective story he called Hickey & Boggs as well as the studio agreed to fund a draft and his screenwriting career was on its way. They got two daughters, Joanna and Miranda.

Looks like we don't have Walter Hill salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1Co-founder of "Brandywine Productions" with David Giler and Gordon Carroll, a film company most famously associated with the 'Alien' series of films.
2Credits his spare writing style to an enormous influence on him from Alexander Jacobs's script for Point Blank (1967), which he read while initially trying to enter the film industry.
3Profiled in "American Classic Screen Interviews" (Scarecrow Press).
4Stated on the DVD introduction for the Ultimate Director's Cut on The Warriors (1979) that he is against making special editions to his own films because he feels that movies should speak for themselves and do not demand as he describes "special explanations and long apologies".
5Born on the same day as Nelson Carvajal.
6Received the prestigious Joseph Plateau Award at the Flanders International Film Festival. The Joseph Plateau Life Time Achievement Award, considered the festival's highest honor, recognized Hill's achievement in filmmaking as a writer, director and producer, and was presented during the 34th edition of the festival in Ghent, Belgium (October 9th - 20th).
7Originally planned for his Streets of Fire (1984) to be the first in a trilogy of films centering on the character of Tom Cody, played by Michael Paré, but the film's box office failure put an end to that project.
8His film Streets of Fire (1984) is said to have been an influence on the Japanese anime series Bubblegum Crisis.
9Was originally meant to direct Alien (1979).
10Was set to direct the remake of John Woo's The Killer (1989) (aka The Killer), with Richard Gere as the Yun-Fat Chow character and with Denzel Washington as the Danny Lee character. But due to creative conflicts, Hill left the project.
11His favourites directors are John Ford, Howard Hawks, John Huston, Raoul Walsh, Sam Peckinpah, and Sergio Leone.
12Is an avid fan of John Wayne. When The Duke saw Hard Times (1975), he wanted Hill to helm his last film, The Shootist (1976). But Hill refused because he didn't want to see his hero dying in a movie.
13Is a specialist of crime novels.
14Biography in: John Wakeman, editor. "World Film Directors, Volume Two, 1945-1985." Pages 433-438. New York: The H.W. Wilson Company, 1988.
15He once said in an interview that he considers all of his films as a director westerns. If you look closely, you can see western touches, such as revolvers, Winchester rifles and cowboy hats in all of his work.

#Quote
1I don't have anything to say about it. I made it! I always liked it. I was always amazed at the reception. The American reception was a real kind of nothing. But it was very nicely received around the world. I was very proud of the actors in it. It was a tough movie to make, and they put up with a lot. They would probably tell you they put up with a lot from me. But they really did it without complaint. And I just thought I was very fortunate to have the cast that I had.
2I always say this about 48 Hrs.: I never claim it's the best movie or anything like that, but it did turn out to be a very imitated film.
3It always surprises me when people call 48 Hrs a "buddy picture" because those guys pretty much hate each other - it's an anti-buddy movie!"
448 Hours was fun. Back then Eddie Murphy was very inexperienced, and Nick Nolte was. Eddie wasn't an actor; he was just being an actor. Also, Nick is extremely talented and together they just clicked. It was a marvelous experience. Nick is someone I can call one of my best friends today,
5I am very happy about it. I mean no film is beyond criticism, but I think we've made a very modest movie. Heck, we did it in 39 days, it cost $20 million dollars, which is very cheap for Hollywood standards, and tells a good story. I guess it's the literary equivalent of a short story,
6[2002, Being asked on what he learned from the experience of making Supernova (2000)] Ah, what did I learn the most? Oh, I think there was a desperate political situation with a failing administration, and I foolishly got into helping a movie that I thought could turn into something, but I then discovered I didn't have as free a hand as I had been led to believe, and when I was taking the movie along the lines that I thought would make it a credible movie, they did not share that vision, so we had a rather angry breach, and the movie was re-cut by two or three directors. I won't say there's no recognition of what I did, but the ending's much different, and much of the setup is different. Mine was a much darker vision. I can honestly tell you that I have yet to have seen it, but it's on cable a lot and sometimes I'll be surfing about and I'll sit there and watch about 4 minutes just to see what they've fucked up, but James Spader's performance is still, I can see is quite interesting in it, I thought Jimmy did a good job.
7I very purposely -- more and more so every time I do a script -- give characters no back story. The way you find out about these characters is by watching what they do, the way they react to stress, the way they react to situations and confrontations. In that way, character is revealed through drama rather than being explained through dialogue.
8[on working with Charles Bronson on Hard Times (1975)] Well, Charlie does things in terms of performance that are hard for a lot of other people to comprehend as being part of an actor's tool, and that is being visually interesting. There is a great poetry in Charlie's face. With just a look, he can suggest moods that are quite interesting. He's always on time, he always knows his lines, and he never misses a mark.

#Trademark
1In his films, heroes often shoot the villian multiple times in the final confrontation.
2Has an affinity for the city of El Paso. El Paso has been mentioned in or has been the location of several Walter Hill movies.
3Frequently works with character actors James Remar, David Patrick Kelly, Brion James, and Ed O'Ross. Frequently casts actors Bill Paxton and Stoney Jackson in minor roles (e.g. Streets of Fire (1984) and Trespass (1992)).
4Frequently has a minor character named "Luther" in his films
5Several of Hill's films have a bar called "Torchy's." In several of his films, characters utter a variation on Cody's (Streets of Fire) and The Driver's exhortation to "Go home!"
6At least one character in many of his films drives a Sky Blue Cadillac Convertible. e.g. 48 Hours, Brewster's Millions, Red Heat
