    Posted by on Jan 8th, 2013

    Some rather bleak news in the SA film industry…Snakes On A Plane director, David R Ellis, has been found dead in a Johannesburg hotel room. Ellis was in SA preparing to film Kite which would have starred Samuel L Jackson.

    Ellis also directed Final Destination 1 and 2 as well as Shark Night and Cellular. No details of his death have been released.

    No word either on whether production of Kite, a remake of a Japanese anime film, will proceed.

    Jackson sent out a tweet yesterday about the death of his friend.
