He might turn out to be the greatest filmmaker in the history of cinema. We have no idea. Let him take a shot at it and we'll see if he has it.

Lol that is funny and I am not familiar with that individual really, but why do you guys think that specific person has no filmmaking/directing talent/potential? Did he direct something aweful lately?

Sidney Lumet, Woody Allen, Terry Gilliam, Charlie Chaplin, Sergej Eisenstein, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Takeshi Kitano... 

 

Random additions:

 

Orson Wells. Ron Howard. Jodi Foster.  Angelina Jolie.  Dexter Fletcher.  Lake Bell.  Tim Robbins.  It's a long, long list.  Damn near every actor with a bit of ability seems to give it a shot.

 

Why that should discourage anyone interested in making their own stuff escapes me.

Other actors-turned-filmmakers: Sidney Lumet, Woody Allen, Terry Gilliam, Charlie Chaplin, Sergej Eisenstein, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Takeshi Kitano... (And Kitano is considered a low-brow tv comedian
in Japan and an arthouse director in the West.) Just saying...

 

Ron Howard, Danny DeVito, even Mel Gibson... and all the others already mentioned.

Danny's debut direction The War of the Roses even became a small hit in 1989. Channing Tatum may or may not succeed in his endeavour but the point is, the encouraging, positive vibe inside this forum is quite palpable these days.   ;)

 

If some young actor's aspirations to become a DP is making you want to quit cinema, maybe you should.
