Famous British movie director Tony Scott committed suicide yesterday without hesitation. Witnesses say they saw Tony get out of his car and climb the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California then jump to his death.
According to the Los Angeles Times, “Investigators probing the death of “Top Gun” director Tony Scott are looking into whether serious health problems prompted him to leap off the Vincent Thomas Bridge on Sunday.
Scott, 68, had just completed a new movie and there had been no public reports of health problems. But Los Angeles County Coroner’s officials said Monday’s planned autopsy will look for signs of a serious health problem and that that is part of the investigation’s focus.”
Scott left a suicide note at his office, law enforcement sources said, but police have not revealed what was in it.”
Tony Scott worked with Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, Denzel Washington, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eddie Murphy, Halle Berry, John Travolta and Susan Sarandon.
Between 1983 to his death Tony directed several major motion pictures; The Hunger, Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop II, The Last Boy Scout, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, The Taking of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable.
Tony is the younger brother of 74-year-old director Ridley Scott (74).
