Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, writer-director Edgar Wright and The Black List founder Franklin Leonard were among the entertainment industry figures who took to social media on Monday to remember Oscar-winning Spotlight producer and Anonymous Content founder Steve Golin, who died Sunday night at the age of 64 after a battle with cancer.

Golin was celebrated as an "ally to storytellers" by The Black List's Twitter account, which cited his support for films that made the famed annual list of Hollywood executives' favorite unproduced scripts, such as Spotlight, The Revenant, Babel and Rendition.

Leonard called Golin's death a "colossal loss to everyone in the film and television industry and who watches film or television," saying that he "aspired toward" Golin's career.

The prolific producer also worked on such TV hits as HBO's True Detective, USA's Mr. Robot and Netflix's 13 Reasons Why.

Esmail wrote simply, "My heart is broken."
