Adam Yauch - Adam Yauch's Film Company To Continue Without Him

Executives at the film company run by Adam Yauch have pledged to honour his legacy by continuing without him following his death on Friday (04May12).
The Beastie Boys star passed away at the age of 47 after a three-year battle with cancer, leaving the music world in mourning.
Aside from his career with the hip-hop band, Yauch was also the head of independent film production and distribution company Oscilloscope Laboratories, which was behind Oscar-nominated projects including Banksy's 2010 documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop and 2009 Iraq War drama The Messenger.
The remaining company executives, Dan Berger, David Fenkel and David Laub, have now paid tribute to Yauch and revealed they are determined to continue his good work.
The statement reads, "We are deeply, deeply saddened by the passing of Adam Yauch - an amazing leader, a dear friend and an incredible human being. Today we are heartbroken at Oscilloscope as we take in this awful news, and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. Adam's legacy will remain a driving force at Oscilloscope - his indomitable spirit and his great passion for film, people and hard work, always with a sense of humour and a lot of heart."
Oscilloscope's upcoming projects include Shut Up and Play the Hits, a concert documentary focusing on Lcd Soundsystem's final show in New York City, and the company was also behind a 2011 adaptation of classic novel Wuthering Heights starring Kaya Scodelario and James Howson.
