He wrote some pilots which did not go to series - Dodge City (circa 2005) - a Western series for CBS, and Saigon Bureau (2008) - about the AIP Bureau of photojournalists in the Vietnam War, a collaboration with Chris Noth based on the book Requiem. He also wrote a script about the Battle of Chosin Reservoir in the Korean War, The Choisin Few for Mark Cuban's 2929 Entertainment, and The Iron Horsemen, a motorcycle feature.


Lost most of his fortune in the early naughts due to a corrupt accountant. Desperate to pay for his son's Law School tuition, he asked his friend David Milch to hire him as a staff writer for Deadwood (2004). Milch refused based on the absurdity of hiring a veteran screenwriter for entry-level work, and instead offered to simply pay the son's tuition in full. Milius later repaid Milch for the loan.


He developed Jornada del Muerto (Journey of Death) (2003), a biker film starring Paul Levesque and wrote a pilot for a TV show for UPN, Delta, about a military special ops team that takes on terrorists. Neither of these were made.

However, financing fell through.


Turned down the role of Jack Lipnick in Barton Fink (1991).


In 1986 it was reported that he was writing the script for Fatal Beauty (1987) which he hoped to direct with Cher. The film was made by Tom Holland starring Whoopi Goldberg.


Sergio Leone courted him to write Once Upon a Time in America (1984). Milius, a fan of his, was enthusiastic about the idea; but Milius was working on The Wind and the Lion (1975) and the script for Apocalypse Now (1979), and could not commit to the project.


Wrote the line, "Go ahead, make my day," for Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry" character in Sudden Impact (1983).

Milius, an avid gun collector, insisted that part of his payment for writing Jeremiah Johnson (1972) be in antique weapons.
