RIP Actor Ben Gazzara, Dead at 81
Source: New York Times , Edward Douglas, February 3, 2012

The New York Times is reporting that legendary actor Ben Gazzara lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City earlier today. He was 81 years old.

The New York-based, classically-trained actor, born Biagio Anthony Gazzara, is best known for his work with the late John Cassavetes, a pioneer in independent filmmaking with pioneering films like The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) and Opening Night (1977). He followed those pivotal films by working with other prominent directors, such as Peter Bogdanovich (Saint Jack, They All Laughed), David Mamet (The Spanish Prisoner), Spike Lee (Summer of Sam) and Lars von Trier (Dogville).

Although Gazzara never received an Oscar nomination for his film work, he received four Emmy nominations before winning one in 2003 for his supporting role in HBO's "Hysterical Blindness" opposite his earlier co-star (and Cassavetes' widow) Gena Rowlands. Having been a regular presence on screen since the early '50s, Gazzara continued to work in his later years with his most recent appearance being in the thriller 13.

Zalman King ("9 1/2 Wochen"/"Wilde Orchidee") haben ebenfalls den Kampf gegen den Krebs verloren...
Some sad news has come in: Producer, director, and screenwriter Zalman King, age 69, died this morning at his Santa Monica, California, home following a six-year battle with cancer.

While best known for his erotically-charged projects like 9 1/2 Weeks, "Red Shoe Diaries," and Wild Orchid, King did dip his toes into the horror genre on more than one occasion.

He got his start as an actor in the 60's and 70's (this writer being a big fan of his back in those days) but gained the most notoriety for writing, producing, and directing the aforementioned titles. His genre-related performances included appearances on the small screen in "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" back in 1964 and "The Munsters" in 1965 as well as the feature films Saint Francis, Galaxy of Terror, Blue Sunshine, and Trip with the Teacher.

In his later career King focused on documentaries about musicians, directing films about country singers Willie Nelson and Dale Watson and musician Toledo Diamond. He also directed music videos for rap groups, typically free of charge. "He loved to support artists everywhere he went," his son-in-law, Allison Burnett, said.

Actor Charlie Sheen, a longtime friend of King's, posted the following on his Facebook page today: "The world lost a brilliant and noble soul today. My dear friend of 40 years, Zalman King, just lost his battle with cancer. Fought like a recon Marine til the bitter end. Say a prayer for his amazing wife Pat and their lovely daughters. Safe travels my friend."

King is survived by his wife, Patricia Louisianna Knop, and their two daughters, screenwriter Chloe King and designer and painter Gillian Lefkovitz.

We’ve just heard the sad news that SANCTUM producer Andrew Wight has died in a helicopter crash off the coast of New South Wales in Australia. The filmmaker perished with BAFTA and Emmy award winner Mike deGruy in the accident whilst they were apparently scouting locations for a new project. Wight was just 51 years old and deGruy 60.

Wight was worked on a variety of projects for James Cameron including the 3D underwater film GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS in 2003 before going on to write and produce SANCTUM last year, a film that was executive-produced by Cameron. SANCTUM was based on Wight’s own experience revolving around his near-death incident in an underwater cave. It went on to take $100 million at the box-office.

Mike deGruy was an award-winning cinematographer, workign on such projects as DEEP BLUE and many other TV wildlife documentaries. He tweeted four days before the crash; “Been in Australia 2 weeks, one to go then off to PNG. Love this place – especially Sydney on Australia Day.”

They were apparently due to work on an upcoming project together said to be a documentary about Papua, New Guinea.

Rest in Peace: Lina Romay

Fans of Jess Franco and exploitation cinema today are mourning the tragic loss of one of the biggest stars in her industry and sub-genre, the all too young Lina Romay.

As reported by Video Watchblog, the news emerged today from Spain, where actor Antonio Mayans formally announced Romay's death last week, on February 15th at the age of 57 due to a lost bout with cancer.

One look at here IMDB page and you'll see that Lina amassed quite a body of work to go along with her quite beautiful body. Dubbed Franco's muse, Romay, burst onto the genre scene with 1972's The Erotic Rights of Frankenstein and is best known for films such as Female Vampire, The Sinister Eyes of Dr. Orloff, The Mystery of the Red Castle, Erotic Kill, and many, many more. In the Eighties Romay moved from the front of the screen to behind-the-camera as a director of a dozen different films.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer Lina's many friends, family, and constituents our sincerest of condolences. Heaven just got a whole lot hotter. Thanks for the memories, darling. Rest easy.

R.I.P. James Isaac 1960 - 2012

The world of horror has lost another director. This morning, news is spreading that James Isaac has passed away at the age of 51.

Writer Todd Farmer took to Facebook/Twitter last night to write: "RIP Jimmy Issac. A wonderful man, husband and father. I never tear up. I thought." Farmer and Isaac collaborated on 2001's Jason X.

Isaac was apparently fighting some form of blood cancer; he was taken from us too soon.

Isaac's directing career began with The Horror Show in 1989 after working in special FX.

He went on to helm Jason X, Skinwalkers and Pig Hunt. During his FX career, he worked on Return of the Jedi, Gremlins, The Fly and House II.

Wie ich jetzt erst gelesen habe, ist am 29.04. Joel Goldsmith gestorben. Gerade für SciFi-Fans ist das schon ein ziemlicher Verlust, zumal Jerry Goldsmiths Sohn mit 51 Jahren ja auch noch mitten im Arbeitsleben stand. Werde mir ihm zu Ehren heute abend mal wieder JOSHUA TREE anschauen, der imo einen seiner besten Scores beinhaltet. RIP!

Rest in Peace: Richard Lynch

Some really sad news has hit the Internet that character actor and genre favorite Richard Lynch has passed away at age 76. Though we're still awaiting some official word, we'll do our best to fill you in throughout the day as more details arise.

Lynch is best known to fans as cult leader Harris in the 1988 film Bad Dreams, and to call his career anything but prolific is an understatement. Other memorable roles include appearances in Rob Zombie's Halloween and Zombie's forthcoming film The Lords of Salem, Laid to Rest, Invasion U.S.A., Scarecrow, The Sword and the Sorcerer as well as television roles on popular series such as "The A-Team," "Werewolf: The Series," "Six Feet Under," and "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to extend our sincerest of condolences to Richard's many friends, family, and constituents. Thanks for the memories and the scares, kind sir. You will be missed.

From Deadline: "Lynch’s rep Mike Baronas says the actor’s body was found today at his Palm Springs home by a friend and no investigation was planned into the cause of death."

Tony Scott, Director of 'Top Gun,' Dies in Apparent Suicide

Director Tony Scott jumped off the Vincent Thomas bridge near Long Beach on Sunday and died from his injuries. He was 68.

The Los Angeles coroner confirmed to TheWrap that Anthony David Scott of Beverly Hills jumped off the bridge and died on Sunday. That is the full name of the British-born "Top Gun" and "Crimson Tide" director, who has lived in Los Angeles for many years.

The U.S. Coast Guard told The Daily Breeze that a suicide note was found inside Scott's black Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge. Officials said that Scott climbed a fence on the south side of the bridge's apex and leapt off "without hesitation" around 12:30 p.m., according to The Breeze.

Scott, the brother and producing partner of Ridley Scott, is best known for high-octane action movies. The Scott brothers' company is Scott Free Productions.

His most recent movies were "Unstoppable" and "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3." He also was a producer of Ridley Scott's recent "Prometheus."

He was also in the process of exploring a sequel to his biggest hit, "Top Gun 2."

The Vincent Thomas Bridge is a suspension bridge over Los Angeles Harbor that links San Pedro with Terminal Island. It appears frequently in films and television.

More to come...

Ja, ich auch. "True Romance" ist bis heute einer meiner 3 absoluten Lieblingsfilme - und grundsätzlich habe ich Tony´s Stil immer geliebt.

Ich bin gespannt, welche Gründe für diesen drastischen Schritt bekannt werden. Kann mir eigentlich nur eine fatale Diagnose vorstellen...

Ich schließe mich einfach mal Ron Howards Tweet an:

No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day.

Bin ebenso sprachlos wie die meisten hier... hab vorhin bei Hollywood Reporter in der Comment Section ein Gerücht gelesen, dass ihm ein inoperabler Hirntumor diagnostiziert wurde, aber das kann auch Käse sein. Vielleicht gibt es bald eine offizielle Verlautbarung.

Oh mein Gott, der arme! Fand seinen Bruder zwar als Regisseur viel stärker, aber trotzdem schade, dass er nun von uns geht, hat mit "Die Entführung der U-Bahn Pelham 123" für mich eine absolute Perle im Thrillerbereich und ein geniales Remake geschaffen...

Rest In Peace :cry:
