'Superman' producer Ilya Salkind missing

Ilya Salkind, the 63-year-old producer behind the Christopher Reeve Superman films, has been officially declared missing in Mexico. According to John C. Palmer, executive vice president of Salkind’s production company, Salkind was visiting the town of Tepoztlán, near Mexico City, but he’s been unreachable since Sunday night. A missing person’s report was filed with the Mexican police force on Monday, the American Embassy has been contacted, and a personal private investigator has been hired, according to Palmer. There has been no contact with or demands from other parties that would indicate that Salkind, a Mexican native, had been kidnapped, and Palmer holds out hope that his colleague’s disappearance has a simple solution: “It’s not uncommon for Ilya to drop off the face of the earth for a couple of days and then just reappear.”

    Mexico is a dangerous, lawless country that is in the control of drug cartels. Why anyone would venture into there is beyond me. You’re just asking to meet a bad ending.

    “British government assassinates producer of Christopher Reeve Superman movies in Mexico” – WOW, those wicked, pesky, cultureless brits don’t waste any time getting the competition “out of the way” to replace it with their fruitcaked half-baked government propaganda mimic version. Can we say “Buddy Holly”, anyone. I sure can.

    Maybe he just needed to unplug for awhile. Then again, it is Mexico. He should’ve gone to Costa Rica. Hopefully he safely reappears soon.
