Silent Hill film producer dies at 87
A silent film producer who had been working on the cult classic Silent Hill movie was found dead on Sunday, his wife said.
Toby Hwang, the executive producer of the 1993 cult classic, died at age 87 at a nursing home in Los Angeles.
His wife, Kim, said he was found with an apparent heart attack.
He was the only producer of a film that starred Lee Marvin, who is credited with creating the main character, a haunted house worker named Dr. Robert Chambers.
A spokeswoman for Hwang said his death was the result of a “natural cause.”
The film was released in 2001.
The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world and features the voices of Tom Hanks and Carrie Bradshaw.
The film became an instant cult classic and spawned a sequel, released in 2007.
It is also being produced by Warner Bros. in the United Kingdom.
