'Still Alice' Co-Director Richard Glatzer Dies at 63

11 March 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Filmmaker Richard Glatzer, best known for co-writing and co-directing Still Alice alongside his husband Wash Westmoreland, died Tuesday from complications due to Als. He was 63.

Glatzer was first diagnosed with Als in 2011 when he began working on adapting Still Alice from a novel by Lisa Genova. As production progressed, his condition deteriorated severely, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Julianne Moore won an Oscar for her performance in the film, which tells the story of a woman suffering from degenerative Alzheimer’s.

Two days before the Academy Awards ceremony, Glatzer was rushed to the hospital after suffering from respiratory problems. According to Westmoreland, he and Glatzer watched the gala event from the hospital ward.

Glatzer and Westmoreland met in 1995 and got married in 2013. During their time together, they worked on several other well-received projects including the 2001 drama The Fluffer, the 2006 family drama Quinceanera, and the 2011 Errol Flynn biopic The Last of Robin Hood.

11 March 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today is a sad day in the world of Independent Cinema.  Richard Glatzer, the co-director and screenwriter of  “Still Alice,” has passed away after a four-year battle with Als. Born on January 28, 1952 in Flushing Queens, Glatzer first came to prominence with his directorial debut “Grief.”  The 1993 drama premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and was partly inspired by his experience with the loss of his partner, Donald Ray Berry, to AIDS. In 1995, Glatzer met Wash Westmoreland and they became life partners.  Their professional collaborations included “The Fluffer” (2001), “Quinceañera” (2006), which won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award, “The Last of Robin Hood” (2013) and the aforementioned “Still Alice.”  The latter became the biggest success of Glatzer’s career and star Julianne Moore won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance at the Academy Awards last month.  Glatzer was unable to attend the “Alice’s” world premiere at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival, »
