BREAKING: Report: Director-Producer Tony Scott Jumped To Death From San Pedro Bridge

Deadline has not yet independently confirmed this report, but the local Daily Breeze newspaper is quoting Los Angeles County Coroner’s officials as saying that the 68-year-old British film director jumped to his death today from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island. Tony Scott is known for such Hollywood blockbusters as “Top Gun,” “Days of Thunder,” “Beverly Hills Cop II” and “The Taking of Pelham 123,” as well as ScottFree Productions which producers TV shows like The Good Wife with his brother Ridley Scott. Tony Scott climbed a fence on the south side of the bridge’s apex and leaped “without hesitation” around 12:30 PM, according to the Coroner’s Department and port police quoted by the newspaper. A suicide note was found inside Scott’s black Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge, as U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Jennifer Osburn told the Daily Breeze. Earlier today Deadline was alerted that “an older gentlemen who people recognized from either movies and/or TV tried to jump off a pier” and that the attempt was not successful”.
