Daniel Day-Lewis and Michael Mann on the set of the 1992 film. Of Day-Lewis' preparation for the role, Mann says, "If ... you know that you can be dumped into wilderness and have breakfast, lunch and dinner, four seasons a year, and survive, it shows. When Daniel gets to the point where he can do all these things, I could see it as the director."
