Hugh Jackman pays tribute to Greg Coote

London: Superstar Hugh Jackman has paid tribute to Hollywood mogul Greg Coote, who died last week.

The 72-year-old Australian producer was the former chairman of studios Dune Entertainment and Village Roadshow and helped co-finance more than 60 movies including James Cameron`s fantasy epic `Avatar` and sci-fi franchise `The Matrix`, reportedly.

He passed away in Los Angeles on June 27 after a battle with cancer. Jackman expressed his grief in a post on Twitter, writing, "We have lost a pillar of our industry, and a huge supporter of Aussie film. RIP Greg Cotte (sic). You will be sorely missed."
