He wanted to direct The Fugitive (1993) with Nick Nolte in the lead role. This was dashed when Nolte was deemed too old.


Co-wrote a version of Revenge (1990) with David Giler that wasn't used.


He purposefully made Brewster's Millions (1985) "to improve his bank account and success quotient". He later called the movie "an aberration in the career line" being his only flat out comedy. He added that "whatever [the film's] deficiencies, I think the wistful quality was there. I was happy about that. The picture did well and made money.".


His film Streets of Fire (1984) is said to have been an influence on the Japanese anime series Bubblegum Crisis (1987).

His unmade projects include: Lloyd Williams and His Brother aka The Drifters - a Western written circa 1971. Hill says Sam Peckinpah was considering making it after The Getaway (1972) but decided to do Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973) instead so Hill used material from the script in Hard Times (1975).The Last Gun - a Western written with Roger Spottiswoode (circa 1977).Lone Star from the play by James M.
