Film producer Jon Landau, who won an Oscar for his work on “Titanic,” died this Saturday, July 6, at the age of 63. The information was released by Disney Entertainment, which did not reveal the cause of death.

“Jon was a visionary whose extraordinary talent and passion brought some of the most extraordinary stories to life on the big screen. His remarkable contribution to the motion picture industry leaves an indelible mark and he will be deeply missed. He was an iconic and successful producer and even better person, a true force of nature who inspired everyone around him,” said Alan Bergman, co-chairman of Disney Entertainment.

Landau’s career began in the 1980s as a production manager, but everything changed when he began working closely with director James Cameron on the film “Titanic” and later on “Avatar”. This partnership earned him three Oscar nominations, the industry’s most important awards.

The producer would eventually win the award in 1997, with the worldwide box office success “Titanic”, about the historic sinking of the largest passenger ship at the time of the disaster, in 1912.

“I can’t act, I can’t compose, I can’t do visual effects. That’s probably why I’m a producer,” he said, when accepting the Oscar with James Cameron.
