Halloween Producer Killed in Jordan Terrorist Attack

Among the victims of the Jordan suicide bombings: Filmmaker Moustapha Akkad. Mr. Akkad's most well-known contributions? The Halloween films. More on his life and work in this interview done with Tinseltown eccentric Luke Ford. Akkad directed a big-budget movie I've always wanted to see, Lion of the Desert (partially financed by Mohamar Qaddafi?) and a kind of here's-what-we're-about 1976 movie about Muslims, The Message. He was reported to be putting together a film about Saladin vefore his death.
