Director Milos Forman, known for his work on Oscar-winning films “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Amadeus,” has died, his agent said.
He was 86 years old, according to Dennis Aspland, Forman’s representative.
In 1975, he rose to fame when he directed Hollywood blockbuster “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” an adaptation from a Ken Kesey novel. The film starring Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher won five Oscars, including best picture and best director.
It became the second film in history to win the top five Academy Award categories.
