NARNIA Producer Found Dead in Bathroom


Perry Moore found DeadPerry Moore, a co-producer of The Chronicles of Narnia movie franchise and the author of an award-winning novel about a gay teenager with superpowers has died at 39.

Police were summoned to the bathroom of Moore's Manhattan Soho home on Thursday, where the individual was discovered unconscious. He was immediately taken to a hospital but doctors were unable to save his life. Foul play is not suspected, however numerous outlets are reporting he suffered from an apparent overdose of Oxycontin.

His father, Bill Moore, told The New York Daily News in Saturday editions that an initial autopsy was inconclusive. "We're in shock," said Perry's father, Bill Moore, adding that they had spoken the night before and "He was in a great, great mood. No one was expecting this." His father and friends also said he suffered from chronic back pain.

Moore was an executive producer on all three of the hugely successful Narnia films and wrote a best-selling book for the first film, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. But it was his writings where Moore found his passion.

The slaughter death of X-Men's token gay hero, Northstar, at the hands of X-Men's Wolverine, urged Moore to finish his novel, Hero, in which he hoped to create a gay superhero who was not a supporting character, victim, or token character.
