The Fox Searchlight exec VP Joey DeMarco died of apparent cardiac arrest. He’d been ill and scheduled for surgery, sources tell me. He was only 48. He’d joined Fox in 1990. This was sent out to employees from Tom Rothman and Jim Gianopulos: “We are deeply saddened to inform you that our beloved friend Joey De Marco passed away last night. His loss is immeasurable. I know you join us in extending heartfelt condolences to his family. Any memorial service information will be circulated as soon as it is available. This is a sad day for all of us at Fox and everyone who loved this remarkable man.”
