"Factory Girl" director George Hickenlooper died from an accidental overdose, a coroner has confirmed. The filmmaker passed away in Colorado in October, aged 47, while he was promoting his latest film, "Casino Jack", starring Kevin Spacey.

The Colorado medical examiner submitted a report on Monday, November 22 stating Hickenlooper died after taking a mix of alcohol with ethanol and oxymorphone, which affected his breathing.

The autopsy report also indicated the director had a "moderately enlarged" heart, as well as a history of sleep apnea, a disorder which causes irregular breathing while asleep, which were also "significant contributing factors to death", reports the Denver Post.
