    I find it amusing that he was from Disney, but that's horrible that he died so early.

    RIP.

    There's more to the world than just material wealth, you know.

    I know. that wasn't my point. my point was that he worked so hard to get so far and didn't get to enjoy any of it. i just don't think it's right.

    It's a shame that he died but at least there won't be a Saw 3.

    Exactly what I was going to say. And to leave behind two projects must be difficult for his co-workers.

    R.I.P.

    He did great work on the SAW films.

    Just out of curiosity, who's going to finish SAW III or will they scrap what Gregg did and restart production?

    James Wan and Leigh Whannell will finish it, they are the two Aussie guys who created the movie.

    Man, the producer of one of my most loved movie series passed... :(

    Fourty-two isn't that old, either. That sucks.

    I can't said I'd ever heard of the guy before, but 42? Wow. That's depressing.
