Narnia Producer Dead Of Overdose

Perry Moore, 39, the openly gay executive producer of the wildly successful Chronicle Of Narnia movies, has been found dead in his Manhattan home of a suspected Oxycontin overdose.
Moore was found unconscious in the bathroom at about 9:30 a.m. by his partner, Hunter Hill, inside the W. Houston St. home they shared, the sources said. "We're in shock," said the producer's father, Bill Moore, 69, adding that he just spoke to his son the night before. "He was in a great, great mood," he said. "No one was expecting this." Moore - who with beau Hill wrote and directed "Lake City," starring Sissy Spacek and Rebecca Romijn - was pronounced dead shortly after responders arrived. The exact cause of death has not been determined, but sources said it appeared to be an overdose of OxyContin. "We're so sad," said his father. "He's been able to reach out and touch a lot of people."
The Narnia movies have grossed over $1.5B to date.
