Irvin Kershner (1923 - 2010)

Yet more sad news as the director Irvin Kershner passed away on 27 November aged 87.

Probably best known to genre fans as the director of The Empire Strikes Back, Kershner also directed Robocop 2 and the James Bond film Never Say Never Again, which marked Sean Connery's return to the role. Other films of genre note included the psychological thriller The Eyes of Laura Mars the Eliot Gould/Donald Sutherland comedy S*P*Y*S and the revisionist western The Return of A Man Called Horse.
