RIP Passionada Director Dan Ireland, 57

Post by Hot Wheels » Fri Apr 15, 2016 10:56 pm

Besides directing JI in Passionada, Ireland (who'd been suffering "flu-like symptoms" before his 4/14/16 death), also directed other Indie films, as well as other future stars like Renee Zellweger (The Whole Wide World, 1996).

He will be missed by family, friends and fans. :-(

. . . and interestingly, Prince had apparently been taken to hospital about a week before his death, complaining of "flu-like symptoms." Hm. :-|
