Perry Moore, executive producer of The Chronicles Of Narnia trilogy, was found dead in his NYC apartment around 9:20 a.m. Thursday morning.
Although the NYPD have yet to confirm the cause of death, numerous outlets are reporting he died as a result of an OxyContin overdose, but a medical examiner has yet to release an official statement.
The producer's father, Bill Moore, said he had spoken to his son on Wednesday night and everything seemed fine, explaining:
"We're in shock. He was in a great, great mood. No one was expecting this. We're so sad. He's been able to reach out and touch a lot of people."
Perry was found laying unconcious by his partner Hunter Hill and passed away at just 39-years-old.
We send our condolences to the Moore family, as well as the film community, which lost a respected colleague who had an illustrious career ahead of him.
