Hollywood has lost another great action film director & producer. Tony Scott (Brother to Ridley Scott) has died from an apparent suicide and he was 68 years old. Scott is best known for directing movies like Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop 2, True Romance, Days of Thunder, Last Boy Scout, Enemy of The State, Crimson Tide, Spy Game, and the recent Unstoppable which came out in 2010. He has also produced a ton like this summer’s Prometheus. Out of those movies, I would have to say Enemy of the State, Crimson Tide and Beverly Hills Cop 2 were my favorite. It was known he was working on another Top Gun movie, as well as producing the sequel to Prometheus. He will be missed!
Los Angeles (CNN) — Director Tony Scott, best known for the films “Top Gun” and “Beverly Hills Cop II,” died in an apparent suicide Sunday when he jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California, a Los Angeles County coroner official said.
“There’s nothing to indicate it is anything else at this time,” said Lt. Joe Bale of the coroner’s office.
Scott, 68, jumped from the bridge at about 12:30 p.m., Bale said. The bridge spans the Los Angeles Harbor, connecting San Pedro and Terminal Island.
