Producer and director Chris Brinker, best known for producing The Boondock Saints died suddenly Friday morning in Los Angeles California. According to reports, the 42-year-old producer was rushed to a Marina Del Rey hospital late Thursday night after experiencing a sharp pain in his chest and then later transferred to Kaiser’s Los Angeles Medical Center where his 4 a.m. surgery was unable to fix an aortic aneurysm he’d suffered. Chris is survived by his family and longtime fiancee, Erika Bruun-Anderson.
Chris Brinker will still be honored at this week’s Beaufort International Film Festival with the first ever Robert Smalls Indie Vision Award. The 7th Annual Beaufort International Film Festival runs February 13 – 17 in Beaufort, South Carolina.
