Gene Wilder, who regularly stole the show in such comedic gems as “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein,” “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and “Stir Crazy,” died Monday at his home in Stamford, Conn. His nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said he died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 83.

His nephew said in a statement, “We understand for all the emotional and physical challenges this situation presented we have been among the lucky ones — this illness-pirate, unlike in so many cases, never stole his ability to recognize those that were closest to him, nor took command of his central-gentle-life affirming core personality. The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn’t vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing illness or »

Jean-Marc Vallée and Bryan Sipe on Working With Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Demolition’

5 April 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After working on critically acclaimed films “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Wild,”  Jean-Marc Vallée took on an underdog of a project that almost didn’t find its wings – or the cash. From the mind of screenwriter Bryan Sipe, “Demolition” is the story of investment banker Davis Mitchell and his seemingly apathetic and existential spiral after the sudden death of his wife. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Mitchell, Naomi Watts as Karen Moreno, Judah Lewis as Chris Moreno and Chris Cooper as Phil, Davis’ father in law.

Vallée and Sipe talked to Variety about their upcoming film “Demolition.”

What attracted you to this project?

Vallée: Bryan’s script. I mean, what it represents, the whole package. It’s such a unique piece of material and it’s very rare to get to read a script like this — so unusual, so special, so funny, and so emotional and you don’t know where it’s going. »
