Fred Roos, the revered pro­duc­er behind the Acad­e­my Award-win­ning film The God­fa­ther Part II, passed away peace­ful­ly at his Bev­er­ly Hills home at the age of 89.

His death comes just days before his 90th birth­day and has prompt­ed an out­pour­ing of trib­utes from across the film industry.

A Lega­cy of Col­lab­o­ra­tion and Cast­ing Genius

Roos’s illus­tri­ous career in Hol­ly­wood stretched over six decades. He was a key fig­ure in launch­ing the careers of count­less actors, includ­ing Har­ri­son Ford, Al Paci­no, and the cast of Fran­cis Ford Cop­po­la’s The Outsiders.

His long­time col­lab­o­ra­tor, Fran­cis Ford Cop­po­la, with whom he worked on clas­sics like The God­fa­ther and Apoc­a­lypse Now, remem­bered Roos fond­ly. Cop­po­la praised Roos’s “uncan­ny cast­ing abil­i­ty” and called him a “dear friend and col­lab­o­ra­tor who pos­sessed a gen­uine pas­sion for cinema.”

Beyond The Godfather

Roos was­n’t lim­it­ed to Cop­po­la’s mas­ter­pieces. He also pro­duced sev­er­al films for Sofia Cop­po­la, Fran­cis’s daugh­ter, such as The Vir­gin Sui­cides, Lost in Trans­la­tion, and The Beguiled. Actress Aubrey Plaza, who recent­ly col­lab­o­rat­ed with Roos and Cop­po­la on the upcom­ing film Mega­lopo­lis, shared a heart­felt mes­sage on social media, express­ing her grat­i­tude for know­ing Roos.

An Endur­ing Impact

Fred Roos’s pass­ing marks a sig­nif­i­cant loss for Hol­ly­wood. He was a true indus­try titan whose influ­ence can be seen in the careers of some of the most cel­e­brat­ed actors and film­mak­ers. His lega­cy will undoubt­ed­ly con­tin­ue to inspire and shape the future of cinema.
