Horror Film Producer Killed in Jordan

I just heard on the radio that Moustapha Akkad was killed in the recent Jordanian bombings. Akkad was Executive Producer for all of the Halloween films (and strangely little else).

UPDATE: I just saw this on BoingBoing from earlier today, and they point out that he was also the producer of “The Message”, an Oscar-nominated film about the life of Mohammed and an attempt to explain Islam to non-Muslim Western audiences.

  1. He did do other things, maybe without attribution? I worked for a production company he was involved with for a short time about 10 years ago. He was a nice guy, a bit crazy it seemed, but seemed like a great dude. Sad.
