The legendary Hollywood producer - who was behind movies such as `Driving Miss Daisy`, `Deep Impact` and more recently, 2010`s `Clash of the Titan`s - died of a heart attack at his home in Los Angeleson 13.07.12.
Richard - who won an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1990 for `Driving Miss Daisy`, which starred Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy - recently collaborated frequently with director Tim Burton, producing a number of his movies.
Richard`s latest work came on `Dark Shadows` - which starred Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, and was released earlier this year - and he also teamed up with Tim on 2008 movie `Alice in Wonderland` and 2007`s `Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street`.
Richard - who was previously the head of 20th Century Fox - had his first association with Tim on 2001 film `Planet of the Apes` and he also worked on 2005`s `Charlie and the Chocolate Factory`, during which Tim described the producer as a "calming influence".
He previously said: "I`ve worked with a lot of people who like to create chaos so they can solve the chaos.
"He`s not one of those people. It`s amazing that someone who`s been through as much as he`s been through remains as passionate and optimistic about the whole thing."
