Empire of the Sun

1987 –  Ben said that Steven Speilberg’s company produced his movie Tropic Thunder, and Howard asked him about being yelled at by Speilberg during the filming of Empire of the Sun.  Ben said the story is there was this long 8 minute shot that panned to him and Christian Bale at the end, and Ben was supposed to say something and he screwed up his line, so he said “Can we just cut this?”  And then Steven yelled, “What was that? No one yells cut!”  He says Steven is very nice to him now.

Ben said when he worked with Speilberg during Empire of the Sun and he would talk to him for hours about directing Jaws.
