Tony Scott on his remake of The Warriors set in Los Angeles:
I've been meeting all the [real] gang leaders, they're saying they'll sign this treaty for the duration of the shoot. I want this shot of 50,000 real gang members all on Long Beach – The Crips, The Bloods, the Vietnamese, the Cambodians, the 18th Street gang, all there.
I'm sure the LAPD would love that. Fish in a barrel.
Also: No MS-13? I wouldn't want to piss them off.
