Jon Landau, a celebrated producer, passed away at 63, prompting tributes from Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, and James Cameron.  DiCaprio praised Landau’s kindness and positive impact, while Winslet remembered him as a compassionate and supportive figure in the film industry.  Landau’s close working relationship with Cameron spanned three decades, leading to successful projects like Titanic and Avatar.

“The Avatar family grieves the loss of our friend and leader, Jon Landau,” Cameron posted on X.

“His zany humor, personal magnetism, great generosity of spirit, and fierce will have held the center of our Avatar universe for almost two decades. His legacy is not just the films he produced, but the personal example he set — indomitable, caring, inclusive, tireless, insightful, and utterly unique.”
