Today the sad news has come in that Director David R. Ellis passed away in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he was in pre-production on the upcoming film “Kite” with Samuel L. Jackson. The cause of death is unknown at the moment but surely in the coming days we will know more.
Some of his work includes Shark Night 3D, Final Destination 2 and Snakes On A Plane. I always liked the humor he was able to inject into his films. His entry into the Final Destination franchise will always be my favorite and it is a shame that such a talent was cut short too soon. Rest in peace David R. Ellis.
