So sad! Elmore Leonard, legendary crime novelist and screenwriter, has passed.
Elmore was the man behind the hit films Get Shorty, Out Of Sight, and 3:10 To Yuma and FX's Justified, not to mention a million other things we love.
The writer suffered a stroke three weeks ago and was reported to be recovering. Unfortunately, his condition took a turn for the worse, and on Tuesday morning his researcher posted on his Facebook page:
"The post I dreaded to write, and you dreaded to read. Elmore passed away at 7:15 this morning from complications from his stroke. He was at home surrounded by his loving family."
The author will be remembered by his family, his friends, his fans, and the amazing world he created in his 46 novels.
He was 87 years old.
