SNAKES ON A PLANE And THE FINAL DESTINATION Director David R. Ellis Dead At 60


A shocking news in the movie industry has occurred that director David R. Ellis has passed away at the age of 60. The cause of his death is currently unknown, but it is learned that he has died in Johannesburg, South Africa. Apparently Ellis was in South Africa in preparation for directing his upcoming movie adaptation of the highly-controversial Japanese OVA, KITE. The live-action version is also set to reunite Ellis with his SNAKES ON A PLANE star Samuel L. Jackson.


Ellis, who was born and raised in Hollywood, California, began his career as an actor and stuntman. He started his first directing feature in HOMEWARD BOUND II: LOST IN SAN FRANCISCO. From there, he had gradually made his name for himself in the thriller genre with movies like FINAL DESTINATION 2, THE FINAL DESTINATION, CELLULAR and SHARK NIGHT.
