    Fire Your Agent? 5 Directors Who May Need To Rethink Their Career Choices

    In his seminal book "Making Movies," Sidney Lumet wrote, "I've done two movies because I needed the money. I've done three because I love to work and couldn't wait anymore.

    Watch: Video For Maroon 5's 'One More Night' Directed By Peter Berg & Featuring Minka Kelly

    After bringing a board game to life in this summer's bellyflop "Battleship," Peter Berg decided to give himself another challenge, one arguably harder than bringing a board game to the big screen: he has to make you belive that Adam Levine is a sensitive boxer. That's right, block ...
