On the heels of Leslie Nielsen passing, The Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner has also died. From the Washington Post article by Melissa Bell:

Irvin Kershner, the man who took on the risky role of directing the first sequel to "Star Wars," died today, his goddaughter Adriana Santini told AFP. He was 87 years old.

Many of his sequels, including "The Empire Strikes Back," were questioned by critics as departing too much from the original movies. His versions were much darker and spunkier films that found public appreciation, if not critical appeal.

In a fascinating interview with Vanity Fair in October, he imparted the depressing news that he should have helmed one of the "Star Wars" prequels in hindsight. I wish he had. Jar Jar Binks would have never made it past Kershner's cutting-room floor.
