Dean Devlin Quotes

  • [on Mel Gibson’s drinking problems and anti-Semitic remarks]: The day this happened, my wife had gotten this long letter from Mel full of congratulations and talking about the joys of being a parent. She’s Jewish. I’m Jewish. If Mel is an anti-Semite, then he spends a lot of time with us, which makes no sense. But he is an alcoholic and, while that makes no excuse for what he said, because there is no excuse, I believe it was the disease speaking, not the man.
  • It was a total revelation to me” – talking of the experience of seeing Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)
