Comedy writer Madelyn Pugh Davis has died at the age of 90.
The Emmy-nominated star passed away at her California home on Wednesday (20Apr11) after a brief illness, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Davis had been legendary actress Lucille Ball's scriptwriter for nearly four decades, penning over 125 episodes of the iconic U.S. TV sitcom I Love Lucy during the 1950s.
She is survived by her son Michael Quinn Martin and four stepchildren, Brian, Charlotte, Lisa, and Ned Davis.
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
