ComingSoon.net is reporting that Daniel Craft, whose dying wish to see Star Trek Into Darkness was granted by J.J. Abrams, has passed away. Daniel worked for Subway Cinema, which ran the annual New York Asian Film Festival. The festival posted the following on its Facebook page:
Last night around 10:15pm, Dan Craft, who has been a member of Subway Cinema since 2004, passed away. His wife and brother were with him when he went, and he wasn’t in any pain. He’d been a bit loopy for a few days as his liver failed and toxins built up in his blood, and on Thursday his wife asked him if he needed to go to the bathroom. “I’m going…” he proclaimed, “Into the future.”
See you there, Dan.
Dan Craft: 1971 – 2013
We miss you.
