Science-fiction author and screenwriter Richard Matheson has died at the age of 87.
The writer passed away at his home in Calabasas, California on Sunday (23Jun13).
Matheson penned dozens of novels, short stories and screenplays that became hit movies like The Incredible Shrinking Man, What Dreams May Come, The Legend of Hell House and I Am Legend - and he also adapted his own short story Duel for a 1971 Steven Spielberg Tv movie.
Hugh Jackman's 2011 movie Real Steel was based on one of the writer's short stories and he wrote the screenplay for 1983's Jaws 3-D. He also appeared as a senator in The Godfather: Part Ii - one of only a handful of acting roles.
Matheson also worked on episodes of Tv series Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Cheyenne and Wanted Dead or Alive.
