Nora Ephron Dead at 71
When Harry Met Sally screenwriter Nora Ephron has passed away at the age of 71.
The three time Oscar-nominated writer reportedly had been battling leukemia, according to Variety.
Nora, who previously worked on You’ve Got Mail, Julie & Julia, and Sleepless in Seattle, had two projects in development. She wrote and was to direct a biopic on singer Peggy Lee with Reese Witherspoon in the starring role. In addition, she adapted the four-part British television series Lost in Austen into a film and was set to direct it as well.
