The actor loves his job, but would like to branch out into writing and directing movies. He has helmed several episodes of TV series The X Files and Californication, and also directed 2004 movie House of D. He has now decided to try his hand at penning a book, and has been working on one since late last year.
"I have been working on this script this past winter, and I think it is quite dense. I don`t know if it is a movie or not," he explained. "I hope it is, but I am also going to turn it into a novel, just in case."
David is full of ideas for film scripts, and hopes some of them will make it onto the big screen. He admits his ideas aren`t for blockbuster movies, but is adamant they could still be successful.
"I have things in mind for writing and directing, but the scripts I write seem to fall into this independent world, which I started veering towards as I was finishing The X Files, about 10 years ago," he explained to British newspaper The Sunday Times. "And it is a hard world right now, when you want to make the kind of movies I am writing. I think they could be popular, and could do business, but it`s hard to prove that at the script stage. At some point, I think somebody is going to take a chance and give me some money to make one."
