Little, who got his start as a costumer on Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 classic Apocalypse Now and contributed to Transcendence — the April release that starred Johnny Depp — died Aug. 29 at his home in Los Angeles, his ex-wife Carlane Passman told The Hollywood Reporter.
Passman, a costume supervisor, chose not to divulge details surrounding Little’s death.
Little served as costume designer on Tony Scott’s Crimson Tide (1995) and did four films with director John Moore: Behind Enemy Lines (2001), Flight of the Phoenix (2004), The Omen (2006) and Max Payne (2008).
Little also collaborated with two-time Oscar-winning costume designer Albert Wolsky on Barry Levinson’s Bugsy (1991) and Toys (1992), as well as on Jon Avnet’s Red Corner (1997), Nora Ephron’s Lucky Numbers (2000) and Sam Mendes’ Jarhead (2005).
His impressive body of work includes Airplane II: The Sequel (1982), Red Dawn (1984), About Last Night … (1986), Sliver (1993), The Pelican Brief (1993), Striptease (1996), Galaxy Quest (1999), Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her (2000), Lucky Numbers (2000), The Crazies (2010) and Warm Bodies (2013).
Little and Passman worked on such films as The Peacemaker (1997), The Prince and the Surfer (1999) and Behind Enemy Lines. They were married from 1993 until their divorce this year.
Little shared with Joseph Aulisi an Emmy Award nomination for outstanding costume design for a miniseries or a special for Lincoln (1988), which starred Sam Waterston as the 16th president.
Survivors include daughter Breanna, son Ian, sisters Janet and Jennifer, brother Jason and another ex-wife, Terri.
