PAUL HAGGIS

Much like Crash, the latest film from Oscar winner Paul Haggis, Third Person, features a large cast of characters that all have something in common. Starring Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Maria Bello, Adrien Brody, Kim Basinger, and more, it tells the intertwined love stories of three couples in different parts of the world.

Where does Haggis’ own story begin? We sat him down for our new video series, Origin Stories, to find out when he first started telling tales, which filmmakers inspired him, and where the idea for Third Person came from.

Third Person is in theaters now.
