Danny Leiner, Harold and Kumar and Dude, Where's My Car? Director, Dies at 57
Danny Leiner, director of Dude, Where's My Car? and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, has passed away. He was 57-years old. Producer Ross Putman, who worked with Leiner on 2014's The Young Kieslowski, announced the director's passing on social media, noting that he died after a "long illness." The exact cause of death is not clear at this time.

Leiner shot into public eye after the release of 2000's stoner comedy Dude, Where's My Car, which starred Seann William Scott and Ashton Kutcher. Putman had this to say.

"Danny was one of the producers with me on the first real film I ever made; he was not only gracious in sharing the job with some newbies just getting their sea legs, but taught us a great deal in the process. And we collaborated a few times after that, including on the film I just finished-which he helped champion for years.
