"Snakes On a Plane" Director David R. Ellis is Dead at 60

Posted: January 7th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Snakes On a Plane" Director David R. Ellis is Dead at 60Submit Comment
David R Ellis, director of "Shark Night 3D," "Snakes On a Plane," "Cellular," and "The Final Destination," has died in Johannesburg, South Africa. He passed away suddenly and cause of death is not yet known. He was 60 years old.

Ellis was in South Africa preparing to direct the film "Kite," a live-action adaptation of the 1998 Japanese anime that was set to reunite him with his "Snakes" star Samuel L. Jackson.

Born in Los Angeles in 1952, Ellis started out in Hollywood as an actor and then stuntman and stunt coordinator. In 1986, Ellis moved on to second unit directing, helming the action sequences on films such as "Waterworld," "The Matrix Reloaded" and "Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone. His first directing job was on the Disney film "Homeward Bound 2: Lost In San Francisco" in 1996.

One of the best action comedy directors of all time. Final Destination 2, Snakes On A Plane and Cellular were BADASS. RIP.

"and regarding 'the master'...did it ever get a wide release?maybe that's why no download to be found"

i was kinda hoping that a screener would have come out by now due to it being a likely oscar contender and all.

oh well... perhaps bane will find it... and then, of course, being bane, he'll post it numerous times on multiple threads.

Rambo: No releases for The Master yet because it doesn't hit Russia until next month. No lie. Most CAMs come there these days. Too much grief elsewhere.
