R.I.P. Anthony Minghella

March 18, 2008 / Posted by:

Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella has passed away at the age of 54. His agent confirmed his death, but didn’t give any details.

Anthony won an Oscar in 1996 for directing The English Patient. He also directed Mr. Wonderful, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain. He just completed work on The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Anthony was also father to actor Max Minghella.

This came out of nowhere. Sad. Mr. Wonderful is one of my all-time faves.

UPDATE: His rep said that Anthony, “succumbed to a fatal hemorrhage early Tuesday morning at Charing Cross Hospital in Hammersmith, west London.
