Alan Burnett Offers Insight to Green Lantern: First Flight
I have two major influences and it's kind of strange to say them together, but those would be Alfred Hitchcock and Woody Allen. Hitchcock wasn't a writer, of course, but in a way he was because he sat down with his writers and worked his way through the script with them. I think there's a lot of Hitchcock influence in some of the action-adventure things I've done. It's just little things, certain scenes or actions, that remind me of something he would've put in a film. I think Woody Allen has influenced the way I interject comedy into the action adventure. That's my favorite genre: action-adventure comedy. Like NORTH BY NORTHWEST. That's just a beautiful, beautiful movie, and it's as funny as it is thrilling. That's my favorite type of entertainment.
