Fans of Mike Scaccia have raised more than $10,000 (£6,250) for the rocker's family following his death last month (Dec12).
The 47-year-old guitarist was performing with metal band Rigor Mortis in Fort Worth, Texas on 22 December (12) when he collapsed onstage.
Scaccia was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, and a coroner subsequently ruled he had suffered a heart attack.
His Rigor Mortis bandmate Bruce Corbitt launched a fundraising campaign to benefit the late star's family, and fans have already donated $10,200 (£6,375).
In a post on his Facebook.com page, Corbitt writes, "The credit goes out to everyone for helping."
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The actress will no doubt be returning for the long-running FX series.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
