August 4, 2010: Superman Movie Producer Ilya Salkind on Death of Tom Mankiewicz

Ilya Salkind The Superman Homepage checked in with "Superman" film franchise Producer Ilya Salkind to get his reaction to the sudden death of "Superman: The Movie" and "Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut" Creative Consultant Tom Mankiewicz this past weekend at the age of 68. Here is what Mr. Salkind had to say:

    I am deeply saddened by the premature and sudden loss of one of the best writers I've worked with, Tom Mankiewicz. He was an extraordinarily talented and gifted writer whose involvement in Superman 1 and 2 was essential. He was also a very kind and loving person that will sorely be missed. His great mastery writing film screenplays made working with him an unforgettable experience. He had a great sense of humor, and wit, and was a lovely person to work with. He also, of course, had a tremendous unique gift writing film screenplays. I can only wish my most heartfelt condolences to his family as well as all the many friends that he had and that loved him.

    - Ilya Salkind
