Even the URL is kind of horrible. It says "dies-dead". Anyway, fuck Variety and their penis breaths.

Great article on Melissa Mathison with some moving comments from Spielberg. http://time.com/4109365/melissa-mathison-steven-spielberg/

I'm not too familiar with her body of work unfortunately but I do believe that E.T's script is essentially perfect, ranking near the top of my favorite scripts of all time. I look forward to exploring her filmography (especially The BFG) in the near future.

Reese in piece. :(

That's a shame. It doesn't really specified the cause of death, just a vague "died after a brief illness."

It seems to have been updated, as it says the following............

died Wednesday at UCLA Medical Center of neuroendrocrine cancer, her brother Dirk Mathison said.
