Hollywood is reeling from the sad and shocking news of Brad Grey’s death.

The 59-year-old show business mogul died of cancer at his Los Angeles home on Saturday, a brief Monday morning announcement said — taking all but his very close friends and family by surprise.

“He was really a good man,” director Jon M. Chu said in a tweet. The filmmaker helmed an adaptation of the G.I. Joe franchise for Paramount during Grey’s tenure.

“Kind [and] classy and a helluva boss,” Chu said. ‘The world has lost a gentleman.”
