Producer Matt Dentler was the one who first brought the knowledge to public, saying Winick is too late to make the Oscar tribute.

"Letters to Juliet" and "Bride Wars" director Gary Winick has died after losing his battle with cancer. He was 49. Winick was also the filmmaker behind "13 Going on 30", "Charlotte's Web" and acclaimed indie movie "Tadpole".

A spokesman for the director reveals many friends and colleagues felt he had beaten his cancer, stating, "It was a battle that we thought he had won and ultimately they just didn't get it all." Winick died on Sunday, February 27, the day 2011 Academy Awards was held in Los Angeles.

Producer Matt Dentler wrote on Twitter, "Gary Winick died today. Too late to make the Oscars tribute, but way too early. He leaves behind a legacy of supporting indie film and NYC."

His manager Rosalie Swedlin added, "Gary was an incredibly important figure in the indie movement. He will be missed."
