Hollywood Remembers 'L.A. Confidential' Director Curtis Hanson

Academy Award winning filmmaker Curtis Hanson, whose credits include masterpieces like L.A. Confidential, hits like 8 Mile, and under-seen gems like Wonder Boys, passed away yesterday from natural causes in his Los Angeles home. He was 71 years old.

Hollywood was quick to respond to the passing of director Curtis Hanson, director of L.A. Confidential, Wonder Boys, The River Wild and many others.

"Curtis Hanson believed in me and our crazy idea to make a rap battle movie set in Detroit," Eminem said in a statement. "He basically made me into an actor for 8 Mile. I'm lucky I got to know him."

After 8 Mile, Hanson directed In Your Shoes, Lucky You and Too Big to Fail — HBO's dramatization of the 2008 financial crisis — but while filming the surf movie Chasing Mavericks, he was forced to drop out due to an undisclosed illness. Michael Apted finished the 2012 movie, which now stands as Hanson's last.

Hanson was a great, versatile movie professional who — as writer and director — helped create a handful of classics.

Paris Barclay, DGA president:

"As a filmmaker, Curtis often sent his characters into unexpected, dangerous situations that required quick thinking and skilled precision to emerge victorious. This was much like Curtis' own directing, where he thought on his feet and used his honed mastery of the craft to create worlds of suspense and emotion. As a DGA member, Curtis was a champion of protecting the director's vision, serving on the DGA's Creative Rights Committee. He was also a tireless advocate for film preservation, serving on the President's Committee on Film Preservation, and as a board member of The Film Foundation. We are proud to have recognized Curtis with a DGA Honor in 2003 for his prolific career as a director, producer and preservationist. He will be deeply missed."
