Director George Hickenlooper dies at 47
In a statement Saturday, Denver mayor and Colorado Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper said his cousin died of natural causes. Police said he was found dead Saturday morning.
George Hickenlooper was in Denver for the premiere of his latest film, "Casino Jack," starring Kevin Spacey.
Other films directed by Hickenlooper include "Factory Girl," "Mayor of the Sunset Strip" and last year's documentary "Hick Town," based on footage shot while he followed his cousin during the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
"Hearts of Darkness" was a documentary about the making of the film "Apocalypse Now."
