This Sunday, World Film lost another action star of the 80’s and 90’s. Former Lumberjack and talented part-time actor Fred Ward, 79, has died. The news of the death of the star of “Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins,” “Tremors” and “The Right Guys” was first announced by his promoter Ron Hoffman. However, the cause of death was not known at the request of his family.
The San Diego native has brought real strength and a tough demeanor to his work. Part-Cherokee Indian, he draws on his tradition in films such as Errol Morris in Michael Nichols’ Silkwood (1983), as well as Dark Wind (1991) and Michael Aptad’s Thunderheart (1992). Fred played many characters, and not every one of them was “cardboard.”
In many ways, his work, like that of Robert Duval, can be seen as a reflection of the American concept of masculinity. He also played the hard-drinking expatriate writer Henry Miller, who lived with his wife in Paris in the 1930s, Uma Thurman and co-writers Maria de Medeiros, Philip Kaufman’s Henry and June, which was rated the first film. . NC-17, released for rent. In an interview with the Washington Post, the actor said, “Looks like Butt has something to do with this rating.”
His best shot at being a superstar came when he landed the lead role in Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. The Orion Pictures film, based on the popular novel The Destroyer, will launch the franchise with the American version of James Bond. It was directed by Guy Hamilton, wrote Christopher Wood, and Ward signed the three-part Remo Williams deal. In the story, he was a New York police officer who was trained by a Korean master in martial arts, then he became a killer for a secret government agency. However, despite the beautiful scenery overlapping the Statue of Liberty, the film did poorly at the box office. The adventure, alas, ended as soon as it began.
