Hundreds Gather For Funeral Of “Intruders” Producer Matthew Lamothe

intruders squareHollywood producer Matthew Lamothe who sadly passed last week at the way too early age of 30 had his funeral today in Connecticut and many came out to pay their respects to a talented guy who had paid his dues by starting in the mailroom at ICM.


From my own personal perspective, Matthew served as producer on not only a film that I gave a five-star rating to, but also put in the #9 spot on my Top Ten Films of 2017 – the stunning thriller Intruders.  (Formerly called Shut In.)  Not only did I see the film early at LA Film Fest and meet Matthew, but also got a chance to interview leading lady Beth Riesgraf and also host a Q&A at the LA Arena Cinema to an excited audience.


Matthew helped create and include me in a piece of cinema that I adored (and he had new film in post production titled The Rake that is now on my MUST SEE list) and it’s a crying shame we won’t get to see anymore from man who clearly knew his movie stuff – I will always remember you sir.  RIP Matthew.

Hundreds of Hollywood filmmakers gathered in Connecticut today for the funeral service of film producer Matthew Lamothe, who died last week at age 30 in Manhattan, New York.  The film producer’s employer, film financier Tommy Vlahopoulos of Tommy V Films, was one of the first contacted last Monday with the devastating news.

Matthew Lamothe, who had been a Hollywood producer for the last few years, started his career in the mailroom at ICM Partners Talent Agency in Los Angeles, ahead of making the move into producing in 2013.  His most notable film credits include the award-nominated romantic-comedy I’ll See You In My Dreams, and award-winning home invasion thriller Intruders.

“It has been an incredibly difficult week for everyone who knew Matthew,” said Tommy Vlahopoulos. “He was a professional and hardworking film producer.  Everyone Matthew met fell in love with his natural charm and charisma.  He was incredibly kind hearted.  It is a great sadness and loss to the entertainment industry.  He loved his work and really knew how to get the job done.”

Matthew, and the team at Tommy V Films, were in post-production with the horror flick The Rake and in pre-production for Glass Jaw, scheduled to start filming next month.  Other films on the slate in development include; Behind the Sightings, Crawl to Me, The Great Hunt and The Ranch.

Matthew Lamothe was a life force to be reckoned with, a true professional that was loved by cast and crew.

    Sad news regarding Lamothe’s passing. So much ahead of him too.
    Unrelated, but every time I see this movie poster, it reminds me of Cabin in the Woods.
