Few producers in Hollywood have been as prolific as Dino De Laurentiis. For decades the man pumped out tons of genre films, sometimes one right after the other. It’s with a heavy heart that we report today that he’s no longer with us.
According to Italian website ANSA, De Laurentiis, who brought us hundreds of films such as Hannibal Rising, Red Dragon, Hannibal, Army of Darkness, Cat’s Eye, King Kong, King Kong Lives, Maximum Overdrive, Silver Bullet, Dune, The Dead Zone and Amityville II: The Possession, has passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 91.
At this time we here at Dread Central would like to offer our sincerest condolences to Dino’s friends, family, and constituents. Thanks for the memories, sir.
