|"I hate the whole writers-as-victims thing - writers complaining that their original vision was destroyed by the studio. That certainly exists to some degree, but there are a lot of bad writers around. When you hear of a project with 15 writers, it's not like they had 15 Hemingways and just chewed through them." - Helgeland to The Los Angeles Times, Aug. 3, 1997|
|"I wrote a script called 'Highway to Hell,' and there's a state patrolman who rides around a highway in hell. His license plate was DAMNED. When I went to the set, the movie wasn't really how I saw it, and the car wasn't really how I saw it, but the license plate was on the car. I have it on the wall in my office, and it's my most prized possession, because it came out of my head. The movie's crappy, and no one ever heard of it, but it's like... it's like you're a tiny God for a day." - Helgeland quoted in Entertainment Weekly, Aug. 8, 1997|
