It seems as though we’ve been losing a lot of industry greats lately.
We’re sorry to report that Oscar-winning producer, Richard Zanuck very suddenly passed away today at the age of 77.
Zanuck held the role of President at 20th-Century Fox in the ‘60s, before starting his own production company with David Brown.
Zanuck and Brown’s production company had been responsible for some mega-blockbusters including Jaws, Cocoon and Driving Miss Daisy.
Richard most recently produced Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and is survived by his wife of 34 years, Lili.
Rest in peace, Richard. Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time.
