Waxman told me (in 2010) candidly that at the time of making SWEEPERS (1997-98), he used his "writing pseudonym" Darby Black because didn't want to be typecast as an action director, to be able to pursue other kinds of movies, but that retrospectively it wasn't necessary...

SWEEPERS was his first action movie per say while his other films prior and after were more like dramas (he even did a biopic on Anna Nicole Smith), thriller comedies, or crime films, up until the start of his collaboration with Steven Seagal which he had not anticipated 11 years prior when he worked with Dolph...
