Top Gun Director Tony Scott dies after jumping on a Bridge

Anthony D. L. "Tony" Scott is an English film director. His films include Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop II, The Last Boy Scout, True Romance, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, Spy Game, Man on Fire, Déjà Vu, The Taking of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable.

According to the report from CNN, The death of the 68-year-old Scott is being treated as a suicide, said Lt. Joe Bale of the coroner's office.


"There's nothing to indicate it is anything else at this time," he said. Scott jumped from the bridge about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Bale said.

Following Top Gun's success, Scott found himself on Hollywood's A list of action directors. He reteamed with Simpson and Bruckheimer in 1987 to direct Eddie Murphy and Brigitte Nielsen in the highly anticipated sequel Beverly Hills Cop II. While not being critically embraced, the picture nevertheless became one of the year's highest grossers.
