Snakes On A Plane director David R. Ellis dies

Jan 8 2013, 11:19am CST | by

'Snakes On A Plane' director David R. Ellis has died aged 60.

The filmmaker passed away yesterday (07.01.13) in his hotel room in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he was gearing up to shoot upcoming Samuel L. Jackson movie 'KITE'. The cause of his death is as yet unknown.

Samuel tweeted: ''So sad to hear of David R Ellis passing. So talented, so kind, such a good friend. Gone too soon!''

David is best known for 2006 cult thriller 'Snakes On A Plane', which starred 'Pulp Fiction' actor Samuel as an FBI agent on a mission to save terrified passengers from poisonous reptiles let loose on a long-haul flight.

He began his Hollywood career as a child actor in the 70s with parts in 'Wonder Woman', 'Flying High' and 'Rocky III' before training as a stuntman and moving on to filmmaking.

The thrill-loving director also helmed 'Final Destination 2', 'The Final Destination', 'Cellular' and 2011's 'Shark Night 3D', and worked as a second unit director on big action sequences in the first 'Harry Potter' film, 'The Matrix Reloaded' and Kevin Costner's 'Waterworld'.

The father-of-three most recently worked on the Keanu Reeves feature '47 Ronin' and the 'R.I.P.D' with Ryan Reynolds, which are yet to be released.

When Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey ...

Eddie Murphy & 'Driving Miss Daisy' Director 'Cook' Up New Drama

Oct 20 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Fans will see Eddie Murphy get back into Axel Foley mode soon enough with Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the way. Plus, there's still that Twins sequel in the works that will team him up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the cleverly titled Triplets. But before he makes a couple more comedies, he's going to take some time to get into drama briefly. In what will be his first non-animated, non-comedy role since the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, Empire reports that Murphy is slated t ...

In 2007, Eddie Murphy earned an Oscar nomination for his dramatic turn in Dreamgirls. In the years since then, he’s spent his time getting terrible reviews (Meet Dave, A Thousand Words), voicing a donkey (Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After), or planning sequels to old hits (Beverly Hills Cop 4, Triplets).

Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Walton Goggins will have roles in the film, thanks in part to their participation in the live-read of the script, nothing has been officially revealed. Now for The Hateful Eight Jennifer Jason Leigh is set as the first official ...

JK Rowling “Tweaking” ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ Screenplay

Every day, conversations in the film community gravitate to how DC, Marvel and Lucasfilm are working on huge, interconnected universes on the big screen. Innumerable other franchises are emulating this blueprint too, whether it be the Universal Monsters or Ghostbusters. But a similar franchise largely kept out of the conversation is Harry Potter. In the next decade, we’re going to get at least three new films in Potter’s universe. The spin-off series ...

Kite Review

Oct 3 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: ign

Samuel L. Jackson starring in a live-action version of a cult girl-sassin anime may look great on paper and sound awesome as a pitch, but the result here - with Kite (headed to VOD and theaters on October 10th) - is an ugly, boring trudge of a movie. As it turns out, when you redo anime with actual actors you draw express attention to the fact that the story is often obtuse and dull - and is only palatable via the vessel of the style and t ...
