Nothing as been stated as to what is wrong with Ryan so I won't say anything as it's not my place but he is very seriously ill.
"Gutterballs" is not just my favourite of his films, it's one of my all time favourites and my signed copy of it hangs proudly on the wall in my home for all to see.
I'd like to invite you all over to the "Get Well Ryan, We Need You!" group (HERE) where you can leave a comment to help lift his spirits. You can also head on over to the Indiegogo page (HERE) to help contribute anything you can to help.
Personally I'd just like to say that if you're reading this Ryan I hope you get better real soon dude, the world still needs your creativity!
