Dan O’Bannon dead


Dan O’Bannon, co-creator and star of the classic movie Dark Star, has died at the age of 63.

The best obit I found can be read here.

Oh yeah, he also wrote the screen play for a few lesser known films such as Alien and Total Recall. Very sad. I’m a big fan of Dark Star and you can see a lot of what future he, and his buddy John Carpenter, would bring to movies in there student short they made in school.
