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.

Moreso than anything he’s ever done, the new Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight is being assembled in public. There was the very early script leak, the live-read of that first draft featuring actors such as Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Walton Goggins, and the out-in-the-open back and forth over whether or not the script would actually become a film. Now we know The Hateful Eight shoot da ...

THE HATEFUL EIGHT Will Shoot Entirely in Colorado Starting on December 8th

Sep 26 2014 4:54pm CDT | Source: Collider

I have resisted the temptation to read the script for The Hateful Eight and have even avoided the recaps of the live staging that was held of the piece a few months ago in Los Angeles.  So it's encouraging that we're getting this new Quentin Tarantino movie a lot earlier than we thought we might.  We're now learning that the film will shoot outside of Telluride, Colorado and that everything - interiors and ext ...
