Walter Hill in Shootout - Keine Gnade (2012)

He 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.

Isabelle Adjani and Walter Hill in Driver (1978)

Stated 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".

Sylvester Stallone, Sarah Shahi, etc.

He was attached to direct Dick Tracy (1990) in the 1980s with Joel Silver producing. Pre-production had progressed as far as set building, but the film was stalled when artistic control issues arose with Warren Beatty. Hill wanted to make the film violent and realistic, while Beatty envisioned a stylized homage to the 1930s comic strip. The actor also reportedly wanted $5 million plus fifteen percent of the box office gross, a deal which Universal refused to accept. Hill left the project, but Beatty stuck with it.

He wanted to direct The Fugitive (1993) with Nick Nolte in the lead role. This was dashed when Nolte was deemed too old.
