It is my firm belief that a person only has so many good stories in them. That number may differ for people, but it’s still true that once that person has reached his or her limit, it’s just downhill from there. It doesn’t mean that a career in film is over. It just means that they need to scoot aside and produce or play some other role in support of some fresh blood.
