    No, but he's much more likely to make an indie film these days.

    I don't think he died, it's just getting harder for him to find work in Hollywood these days.

    Billy Wilder is still very much alive. [​IMG] Unfortunately, no one is giving him any money to make movies these days. [​IMG]

    You mean he isn't the one that is doing the live action PETER PAN, is remaking "10" as 'DA BOMB' (shades of BO to come?), expected JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS or the PSYCHO remake to actually make money? You mean he isn't the one that took one of the most anti-commercial Christmas stories ever made and turned into into a burger-selling, stuffed-toy peddling flick? Is sinking $180 million into T3, a larger starting budget than PEARL HARBOR? Hey, didn't he greenlight every movie based on lame TV shows from the 70's (where is HAPPY DAYS: The Movie?!!)? That isn't the guy? [​IMG]

    No I don't think he "died", I agree with what was said above: that it's harder for him to find work. Big, generic blockbusters are what's selling. Why pay for a good idea when a generic one will sell just as good, if not better? But there were still quite a few good movies released recently, namely Memento, Mulholland Drive, and a few others.
    There are so many confused folks in this thread [​IMG]

    The only thing that has died here is the public's lack of distaste for the distasteful.
