Co-Producer of 'Narnia' Films Dies at 39

NEW YORK (AP) - A co-producer of "The Chronicles of Narnia"
films and author has died in New York City. He was 39.

Police say Perry Moore was found unconscious in the bathroom of his Manhattan apartment on Thursday morning. Doctors couldn't save him.

Police say the cause of death will be determined by the city's medical examiner, but no foul play was suspected.

His father tells the New York Daily News that the initial autopsy was inconclusive. Bill Moore says he has "no clue what happened."

Besides helping produce the "Narnia" film series, Moore was the author of a 2007 novel called "Hero" about a gay teenager with superpowers. The novel won a Lambda Literary Award for best
novel for young gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender children or
adults.
