Audrey Wells — the author of “Under the Tuscan Sun,” “A Dog’s Purpose” and the just-released movie “The Hate U Give” — has died … based on her reps.
Wells died Thursday after a protracted battle with most cancers. Her husband, Brian, launched an announcement saying, “Over the last five and half years, Audrey fought valiantly against her illness and she died surrounded by love. Even during her fight, she never stopped living, working or traveling, and she never lost her joy, wonder and optimism.”
She’s survived by her husband and her daughter Tatiana.
Audrey’s profession as a author in Hollywood started in 1996, when she penned “The Truth About Cats & Dogs.” She went on to put in writing the screenplay for “George of the Jungle” the next 12 months, earlier than writing and directing “Guinevere” in 1999.
She was additionally the director of ‘Tuscan Sun.’
Her newest film, “The Hate You Give,” is a drama tackling racial stress and police violence in America. It opened Friday in restricted launch.
Audrey was 58.
