Their script for "WarGames" received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The idea for "Sneakers" was first pitched in 1983. At that time Robinson had never directed a feature film, but by 1992, when he was slated to helm "Sneakers", he already had two directing credits under his belt: "In the Mood" (1987) and the surprise hit of 1989, "Field of Dreams". Steve Grumette was credited as Computer Effects Supervisor on the film. One of the last screen appearances for actor River Phoenix, who died in West Hollywood, California, age 23. Former CIA agent John Strauchs worked with the screenwriters through twelve script rewrites, advising them on the most up-to-date technological innovations. He, like the character Martin Bishop, helps business and government secure both premises and computer secrets. He deliberately put mistakes in some of the film's information so as not to help "train" criminals.
