'Superman' Producer -- Found ALIVE In Mexico

A friend of Salkind tells TMZ ... it's unclear how long Ilya has been in the hospital or why he hasn't been able to contact anyone.

We're told Ilya is currently sedated and friends are waiting to speak with the doctor to find out more information.

As TMZ first reported, Ilya -- the guy who is widely regarded as the person responsible for bringing a live-action Superman movie to the big screen in the 1970s -- went missing this weekend after telling friends he had to run some errands.

I'm guessing this is related to the dental work he said he was going to have done, but it's still weird to be hospitalized for dental work, so maybe there's more to the story.

And that folks is why you stay the hell out of Mexico and NEVER have dental or any other medical work done down south...

glad the guy is O.K., hope he won't suffer permanent damage.

It would have made more sense if he went missing since the 70's

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Great news. Thought I was going to hear a bad drug cartel story. Good for him. Hey Ilya, living well is the best revenge! When you're ready to go home, give a great big "POVERTY SUCKS!" shout-out!
