Zum Tod des US-amerikanischen Filmproduzenten Jon Landau

07.07.2024 Der am 23. Juli 1960 in New York City geborene US-amerikanische Filmproduzent Jon Landau (Bild) ist am 5. Juli 2024 gestorben. Mit "Titanic" entstand 1997 der erste Film, den Landau gemeinsam mit James Cameron produzierte und für den er ebenfalls gemeinsam mit ihm mit dem Oscar geehrt wurde. Im Jahr 2000 fusionierte Landau sein Produktionsunternehmen Blue Horizon mit Camerons Produktionsgesellschaft Lightstorm Entertainment, wo Landau die Rolle des COO übernahm. Auf "Titanic" folgten "Solaris" (2002) und schliesslich "Avatar" (2009), an denen Landau als Produzent beteiligt war. Sein nächstes Projekt als Produzent war die Verfilmung des japanischen Mangas "Battle Angel Alita", der 2019 als "Alita: Battle Angel" erschien. Seither produzierte er die Fortsetzungen "Avatar: The Way of Water", "Avatar 3", "Avatar 4" und "Avatar 5". (*)

James Cameron and More Remember Jon Landau: "He Gave Everyone a Sense of Purpose and Belonging"

James Cameron, Leonardo DiCaprio, Zoe Saldaña, Alan Bergman, Peter Jackson and "Avatar: The Way of Water" cast and crewmembers are among those in Hollywood paying tribute to Jon Landau, who died Friday at 63.

Cameron remembered his longtime friend in a statement to "The Hollywood Reporter", writing, "A great producer and a great human being has left us. Jon Landau believed in the dream of cinema. He believed that film is the ultimate human art form, and to make films you have to first be human yourself. He will be remembered as much for his vast generosity of spirit as for the movies themselves."

Landau, a longtime producing partner to James Cameron, was behind three of the top four highest-grossing movies of all time

Landau helped make history with "Titanic," the first film to cross $1 billion at the global box office

He topped that movie’s record-breaking grosses twice, with 2009’s "Avatar" and its sequel, 2022’s "Avatar: The Way of Water."

Before his death, Landau was deeply involved in the production of the "Avatar" sequels.

Cameron is planning to fill his blockbuster sci-fi franchise with five movies in total, with the fifth tentatively coming out in 2031.

"Titanic" was nominated for 14 Oscars and won 11, including for best picture, an award Mr. Cameron and Mr. Landau shared.

"Jon was a visionary whose extraordinary talent and passion brought some of the most unforgettable stories to life on the big screen"

"His remarkable contributions to the film industry have left an indelible mark, and he will be profoundly missed. He was an iconic and successful producer yet an even better person and a true force of nature who inspired all around him," Alan Bergman, Disney Entertainment co-chairman, said in a statement.

"I can’t act and I can’t compose and I can’t do visual effects. I guess that’s why I’m producing“ (Jon Landau)

Landau was a key player in the Avatar franchise, which saw frequent delays of the release of The Way of Water. Landau defended the sequel’s progress and Cameron’s ambitious plans to film multiple sequels at once to keep the franchise going.
“A lot has changed but a lot hasn’t,” Landau told the Associated Press in 2022, a few months before the sequel’s release. “One of the things that has not changed is: why do people turn to entertainment today? Just like they did when the first Avatar was released, they do it to escape, to escape the world in which we live.”
