Wolfgang Petersen, the German director who created acclaimed films such as "The Neverending Story" and "The Submarine", passed away at the age of 81 - this was learned today (Tuesday).

"The Submarine", which takes place as its name implies inside a submarine during World War II, was released in 1981 and launched Petersen's career with six Oscar nominations, including for screenplay and direction.

Since then he directed another series of films including "The Perfect Storm" with George Clooney, "Air Force 1" with Harrison Ford, "In the Line of Fire" with Clint Eastwood, "Troy" with Brad Pitt and "Poseidon".

Perhaps the most well-known of all is the cult film "The Neverending Story", based on Michael Anda's book.

According to the report on the Deadline website, he is survived by his wife of the last 50 years, Marie Antoinette, his son Daniel and two grandchildren.
