In one of the most shocking news I’ve heard today, Director Tony Scott dies of an apparent suicide.  According to reports, Scott jumped to his death from the Vincent Thomas Bridge near San Pedro on Sunday afternoon. Witnesses say the director pulled over to the side of the bridge and “jumped without any hesitation.”  Sonar equipment was used to locate is body in the water. He is said to have left a suicide note in his car.

Tony Scott was 68 and the man behind hits such as Enemy of the State, The Last Boy Scout, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, Beverly Hills Cop II, Deja Vu, Spy Game, Domino, Revenge, The Hunger, The Fan, The Taking of Pelham 123, and Unstoppable.  He, along with his brother Ridley Scott, ran Scott Free Productions which is responsible for some of the mentioned films, but television shows and mini-series such as The Good Wife, Numb3rs, The Pillars of the Earth, Coma, World Without End, The Andromeda Strain, and Call of Duty ELITE: Friday Night Fights.  He was currently developing Top Gun 2 with Tom Cruise before he passed.

My condolences goes out the Scott family.  He was a talented director and he will be missed.
