Eszterhas' first movie was F.I.S.T. which starred Sly Stallone. Before the movie was released Eszterhas and Sly had a few very public squabbles although they did ultimately patch things up. Eszterhas went on to write some of the most popular movies being produced. Movies like Flashdance, Jagged Edge, and Basic Instinct.
On Tuesday, Eszterhas' latest book, Hollywood Animal : A Memoir will be released. It promises to be a "shocking and often devastating look inside the movie business. It intimately explores the concept of fame and gives us a never-before-seen look at the famous. Eszterhas reveals the fights, the deals, the extortions, the backstabbing, and the sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll world that is Hollywood."
Man, if it does all of that, I'll bet it could make a good movie. Hmmm... I wonder who'd write it?
