Hollywood should have more Richard Donners, not less - his passing is a loss to the industry IMO.

Hollywood has been in dire need of the likes of Richard Donner for over a decade now. A Director who made mainstream popular culture movies in Hollywood original and great, and brilliantly entertaining.
Is there anyone else left who has that knack aside from Robert Zemeckis? No one springs to mind.
A really nice Donner story popped up while Boards was off the air: Donner & his wife paid for the college tuition for the actor who played Chunk - Jeff Cohen. Cohen added his own tribute of thanks for helping him get a lift in life:
Donner and his wife, Lauren Shuler Donner, paid his college tuition and provided a critical source of emotional and financial support when he needed it the most. Cohen is now a prominent entertainment attorney and the co-founder of the Cohen & Gardner firm in Beverly Hills.
As a human being, Dick was so kind to me. I’m an entertainment attorney, and I have a firm out here in Los Angeles. None of that would have happened for me without Dick Donner helping me when there was nothing I could do for him. To me, that’s a unique thing in our business. Dick Donner and Lauren Shuler Donner, because they were kind, paid for my college when I went to Berkeley.
Does richard donners death mean lethal weapon 5 is dead in the water or will they get another director ?
