Dutch music mogul Guus Van Hove and his wife have been found dead in the California desert.
Reports suggest the rental car Van Hove and his wife Helena Nuellet were driving stalled and the couple perished in 105-degree heat.
Their bodies were found on Tuesday (23Aug11) miles away from their abandoned vehicle.
Van Hove, 44, was the director of Dutch music venue 013 and the organiser of the annual Roadburn Festival.
A statement from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department reads, "At this point, there is no sign of obvious injury to either person, and the evidence indicates the pair both succumbed due to exposure to the elements."
It is believed Van Hove and his wife were on vacation in California, driving from Palm Springs to Arizona.
All upcoming concerts at 013 have been cancelled as a mark of respect.
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
