Legendary novelist, screenwriter, and all around badass Elmore Leonard has died at the age of 87. The New Orleans-born writer passed away three weeks after suffering a stroke in his hometown of Detriot.
Some may know Leonard not by his vast array of novels that examined the darkside, toiling primarily in the crime/westerns, but by his list of films adapted from them: Jackie Brown, 3:10 to Yuma, Hombre, Get Shorty, Out of Sight and more. More recently his distinctly snappy brand of dialogue was ably adapted for TV show Justified on which he was an executive producer. Elmore, you will be sorely missed.
