Narnia Producer, Novelist Perry Moore Dead at 39

perry_moore120.jpgWhoa: Perry Moore, who served as executive producer on the Chronicles of Narnia franchise and authored the benchmark gay teen superhero novel Hero, was found dead Thursday in his New York apartment building. He was 39. Sources say Moore suffered a drug overdose; at least two reports cite OxyContin, adding that no criminality is suspected. Moore was reportedly in the middle of writing a Hero sequel and had begun another young-adult series about superhero triplets. He was discovered by his partner, Hunter Hill, with whom he'd directed the 2008 indie feature Lake City and (with Spike Jonze) a documentary about Maurice Sendak. Quite a loss. RIP. [THR]
