Tony Scott is Dead

LOS ANGELES - Tony Scott died Sunday after jumping from a Los Angeles County bridge, authorities said. The 68-year-old's death was being investigated as a suicide, Los Angeles County Coroner's Lt. Joe Bale said.

It was a puzzling end for a filmmaker who had maintained a busy pace, with a sequel to "Top Gun," his biggest hit, in the works.

"I can confirm that Tony Scott has passed away. The family asks that their privacy is respected at this time," Scott's spokesman, Simon Halls, said in a statement.
