Director David R. Ellis — who helmed mass entertainment like Snakes on a Plane, Cellular, and The Final Destination — died today, EW has confirmed. He was 60 years old. No cause of death has been released.
Ellis got his start as an actor and stuntman, transitioning into directing the second units on action-based productions like Waterworld, The Perfect Storm, The Matrix Reloaded, and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. His feature directing debut was the 1996 family production Homeward Bound 2: Lost in San Francisco, but he quickly transitioned to genre-soaked thrillers starting with 2003′s Final Destination 2.
