Hollywood is gonna have to find someone else to make their awesomely-on-purpose-bad movies!

Director David R. Ellis has passed away.

The man who brought the world Shark Night 3D, The Final Destination, Cellular, Final Destination 2 and of course, Snakes on a Plane — was found dead Monday morning in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was only 60-years-old.

David's long time pal Samuel L. Jackson mourned his loss on Twitter, writing:

Authorities say Ellie was found in the bathroom of his hotel room, and foul play is not suspected. They still haven't determined a cause of death.

Our thoughts are with his wife and three children.

He's in a better place now. A place with no snakes.
