Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, Christopher Nolan and Cillian Murphy, and Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson are just a few of the great collaborators who starred in the film Field of Dreams in the late 1980s. They would then continue to collaborate on projects together for over 30 years, including filming, writing, and producing projects together.
The duo's involvement in Good Will Hunting is well-known among fans, who won the pair their first Academy Awards. They have a long history of collaboration, with over three decades of collaboration.
