According to Deadline:
Officer Tony Im of the LAPD confirmed the news to Deadline, saying police arrived at Hanson’s home at 4:50 PM and that he was pronounced dead at the scene. The filmmaker had been in poor health for a while.
Hanson co-wrote (with Brian Helgeland), directed and produced L.A. Confidential (1997), an adaptation of James Ellroy’s noir novel which was up for Best Picture and also earned him a directing nom and won the Palme d’Or at Cannes. Set in 1953 Los Angeles, the film starred Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell,Danny DeVito, David Straithairn and — in brief but Oscar-winning scenes — Kim Basinger. It followed a group of corrupt LAPD officers and a deal with a Hollywood gossip rag to feed it celebrity tips
