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.
That guy has been dead for years.
What's his name?
Billy Wilder is still very much alive. Unfortunately, no one is giving him any money to make movies these days.
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?
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
No I'm ok guys just had a rash of some kind, back in toonland soon, thanks for caring.
No, but thanks for asking.
Yeah, Alan Smithee died back in 2000.
Isn't he the guy that greenlighted "Good Burger?"
He's alive and well and living in my basement.
The only thing that has died here is the public's lack of distaste for the distasteful.
Nope..I'm still alive and kicking
Ernesto, are you a lawyer?
Jerry Bruckheimer died?!!!
For the humor impaired I'll add a to that statement.
