One thought on “Top director killed in crash

  • It wasn’t an accident. I found the original manuscript for Animal Kingdom that he’d worked so hard on, but unfortunately the director made it a flop and his peer David Michod stole the entire thing and made a fortune. I hope it haunts him forever that Lucien said goodbye to the boys and to take care of my brother before purposefully driving into a tree because of David.
