Tom Kennedy, MGM/UA creative of the '90s, dies age 63

12-Dec-2011 • Bond News

The man who oversaw 007's revival after a six year hiatus between "Licence To Kill" and "GoldenEye" has passed away.

He wrote and produced trailers, TV spots and product reels for the major studios, working on campaigns for movies including "The Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi," "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," "The Terminator," "The Year of Living Dangerously" and the first four "Star Trek" films -- Variety explains.

Before the poorly received "Die Another Day" hit the screens, Kennedy departed MGM for Technical Knock Out Pictures.

In addition to spinning the movie marketing for MGM, Kennedy often lent his voice to trailers and promos for ABC and Showtime.
