Sad news Laura Ziskin probably best known as the producer on the 1st 3 Spidey films and the first woman to produce the Academy Awards telecast alone in 2002 has passed away.

Oh man. That's sad :(

We owe her a lot for the Spidey films.

Sad news. I remember watching some of the behind the scenes stuff when the first Spider-Man movie came out and she was featured rather prominently. It seemed like she took the job very seriously.

She's actually still listed as one of the producers on The Amazing Spider-Man, the upcoming reboot. Although she isn't the director or a cast member, I wonder to what degree the death of a producer affects a film in mid-production?
