'E.T.' Screenwriter Melissa Mathison — Will Missing … Fortune on the Line

1229-melissa-mathison-GETTY-01Melissa Mathison — the ‘E.T.’ screenwriter and ex-wife of Harrison Ford — is at the center of a mystery … her will is missing, and turns out a lot is on the line because she’s worth a bloody fortune.

Melissa — who died last month from cancer — had written a will but new court docs reveal her business manager can’t find the original.

The court docs show Melissa is worth $ 22 million. Her fortune is all in a trust, but the document was not included in the legal papers so we don’t know who’s supposed to get it. She had 2 kids so it’s a good assumption they’ll get at least part of it.

So now the question … what happens if the original will is never found? In California, as long as no one’s fighting over her estate, a copy will do just fine.
