Walter Hill (1942) is an American film director, screenwriter and producer. Hill is known for male-dominated action films and revival of the Western. In 2000 Hill directed the film ‘Supernova’, the studio did not agree with his vision and brought in Francis Ford Coppola to re-cut the film. Director Walter Hill was credited as Thomas Lee. Shortly before the premiere of ‘Supernova’ the Directors Guild of America (DGA) had retired the name Alan Smithee, the official pseudonym used by film directors who wish to disown a project.
