Chris Brinker, producer of writer-director Troy Duffy’s 1999 indie attention grabber “Boondock Saints” and its 2009 sequel, died early Friday after surgeons at a Los Angeles hospital were unable to repair an aortic aneurysm. He was 42.
Brinker’s first directing effort, “Whiskey Bay,” starring Amy Smart, Willem Dafoe and Matt Dillon, is in post-production.
He also produced the 2000 indie “Brooklyn Sonnet” and Peter Ettinger’s 2009 film “Lonely Street,” starring Jay Mohr.
Brinker was prominently featured in the 2003 documentary “Overnight,” about filmmaker Duffy’s rise and fall.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 2:30 p.m. at the Old North Church, Forrest Lawn Memorial Park, 6300 Forrest Lawn Drive.
