Famed filmmaker Tony Scott–director of Top Gun, Enemy of the State and many, many more, died today after jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles.
Scott–the brother of Blade Runner and Prometheus director Ridley Scott–reportedly left a suicide note in his car, which was parked in one of the bridge’s eastbound lanes. The note was reportedly discovered by the U.S. Coast Guard, according to TMZ.
His suicide apparently happened shortly after noon Pacific time, and his body was discovered by the Coast Guard using sonar tools four hours or so later, but it’s just now coming out that the body recovered was Scott’s.
“RIP Tony Scott,” tweeted prospective Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn within moments of the news breaking. “Damn. He was a huge inspiration. Very sad.”
Scott was supposed to direct Narco Sub for 20th Century Fox, a spec script from David Guggenheim that was bought up back in November of last year
