Producer Don Simpson
sadly passed away in early 1996, after years of battling drug addiction. "The Rock" was the last film he and Jerry Bruckheimer
Bruckheimer, on the other hand, has spent the last 15 years producing movies on his own, and doing wonderfully with it. He finished out the 90's with "ConAir", "Armageddon" and "Enemy Of The State". In the 21st Century, he turned some of his talents to television with such shows as "The Amazing Race", "Cold Case", and the three "CSI" series. But Mr. Blockbuster(as he's called) also continued his film work with "Pearl Harbor", "Gone In 60 Seconds" and "Black Hawk Down". But beginning in 2002, his partnering with Walt Disney Pictures has given Jerry some of his greatest success, especially the two franchises "Pirates Of The Caribbean" and "National Treasure".
