Samuel Hadida, the veteran film distributor who produced the Resident Evil movies and features for director Tony Scott and Claude Lelouch, has passed away. He was 64.
As a producer, Hadida collaborated with Scott on True Romance (1993) and Domino (2005); with Constantin Film on the Resident Evil and Silent Hill movies; and, more recently, with Lelouch on Un+Une and The Best Years, the forthcoming sequel to the filmmaker’s Oscar-winning classic A Man and a Woman.
His other genre work included Solomon Kane, both Silent Hill movies, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus( a truly underrated film… Heath Ledger’s last) Brotherhood of the wolf, Killing Zoe.
