Charles Gordon, Oscar-Nominated Producer for ‘Field of Dreams’ and ‘Die Hard,’ Dies at 73
Charles Gordon, a film producer who earned an Oscar nomination for his work on 1989’s “Field of Dreams,” has died of cancer. He was 73.
Gordon’s brother, Lawrence Gordon, who he shared the Oscar nomination with, confirmed his death. “Although he was 11 years younger, he was more like an older brother to me in many parts of my life,” Lawrence Gordon told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. He was a wonderful family man with excellent judgment. On our movies, he was invaluable.”
Gordon also produced films such as “Die Hard,” “October Sky” and “Waterworld.” In television, he served as an executive producer on shows like “Just Our Luck,” “The Renegades,” “Lone Star” and “The Streets.”
Gordon is survived by his wife, Lynda Gordon, and three children Jamie, Kate and Lily.
