Sad news, Dino is a true legend! If you want a taste of just how tough things might have been for a guy like Dino, you should watch the 2008 movie “What Just Happened” (Robert De Niro, Sean Penn, Bruce Willis)…kinda slow paced, but probably a pretty accurate depiction of just how crazy and money driven Hollywood is.

More shocking than his death is how long he lived - 91 years old!

There was no producer quite like Dino. He was responsible for the emergence of some of the best cult classics, like Barbarella, Death Wish, Flash Gordon, Conan (duh), Army of Darkness... I could go on and on.

With how pathetic Hollywood is right now, the death of Mr. de Laurentis heralds a sad time. I'm calling it, right now: cinema is dead.
