The tragic news has been making the rounds that Perry Moore, the co-producer of "The Chronicles of Narnia," was found dead in his New York City apartment on Thursday at the far-too young age of 39. Found on his bathroom floor by his partner Hunter Hill, it's being reported Moore may have had an accidental overdose on the painkiller OxyContin, having suffered serious and chronic back pain for years, although the initial autopsy is still inconclusive.
Besides being pivotal in bringing C.S. Lewis' beloved fantasy series to the screen in 2005, Moore also recently wrote, produced and co-directed the independent film Lake City with Sissy Spacek and Troy Garrity, along with Hunter Hill. Moore also wrote "Hero," a book about a gay superhero. as well as an illustrated book about the making of The Lion, The WItch and the Wardrobe.
