Hollywood producer Laura Ziskin has died aged 61 after losing her battle with breast cancer.

Ziskin worked on a number of successful and much-loved movies, including As Good As It Gets , Pretty Woman and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films.

Most recently, she was producing The Amazing Spider-Man alongside director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield.

Ziskin was also one of the co-founders of cancer awareness and research charity Stand Up 2 Cancer.

Her family have requested that donations be made to standup2cancer.org in lieu of flowers.

Our thoughts are with Ziskin’s family at this difficult time.
