Oscar-winning writer and film director Curtis Hanson has died at his home in Hollywood at the age of 71, police say.
According to a police spokeswoman, he died of natural causes. A report said he had been retired in recent years due to Alzheimer's.
Starting as a writer for the magazine Cinema, he later won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay for LA Confidential.
He also directed Eminem's Detroit hip-hop movie, 8 Mile.
Officers visited Hanson's home for a "death investigation" and he was pronounced dead at the scene, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
