And I will NEVER understand how they could hire an action movie editor to direct a science fiction movie.
He directed a couple of other action movies. It's not like he had NO experience.
Superman: The Movie. Casino Royale (2006). Die Hard 2. Tommy. The Omen. Outland. Executive Decision.

Likely, Baird got the directing assignment as part of his overall deal with Paramount. It happens all the time, just depends on how good your agent is. Once again boys and girls it can all be traced to the almighty dollar sign.
