From the Mailibu Patch:
Francesco Quinn, an Italian-born actor and a son of Oscar winner Anthony Quinn, died Friday night of an apparent heart attack near his home in the La Costa neighborhood of Malibu. He was 48.
Quinn was born March 22, 1963 in Rome, Italy to Anthony Quinn’s second wife Iolanda. His acting career began in 1986 with a role in the Oscar-winning Oliver Stone film Platoon. He went on to appear in numerous films and television shows, including playing Tomas Del Cerro in the CBS soap opera Young and the Restless. For that role, Quinn was nominated for an American Latino Media Arts Award, which recognizes people who portray positive representations of Latinos.
In a notable victory for Paramount and director Michael Bay, threequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon has become the first film in the franchise to reach $1 billion in worldwide grosses.
Through Tuesday, the pic’s international cume was $663 million; through Monday, its domestic total was $338.8 million, the top grossing film of the year in North America.
Dark of the Moon is only the 10th film in history to hit the $1 billion mark, as well as securing the record for top Paramount pic of all time. The film’s performance has no doubt been boosted by being the first title in the series to be shot and released in 3D.
Paramount chairman-CEO Brad Gray said Dark of the Moon was “a substantial milestone in the 99 year life” of the studio.
“We are grateful for the extraordinary work of Michael Bay and his film-making team, executive producer Steven Spielberg, and everyone at Paramount around the globe who played a part in helping make this latest Transformers one of the 10 highest grossing films worldwide of all time,” Gray said.
