Tony Scott hat sich im Alter von 68 Jahren das Leben genommen, der Regisseur von Top Gun,True Romance und Beverly Hills Cop 2 sprang gestern abend von der Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles. Der Mann hinterlässt neben Bruder Ridley seine Frau Donna und seine Zwillingssöhne Frank und Max. Vom Guardian:

Several witnesses reportedly saw Scott climb a fence on the south side of the bridge’s apex. He “jumped without hesitation”, said official sources quoted in the Daily Breeze. The Los Angeles Police Department, California Highway Patrol, firefighters and the coastguard conducted a search, while cargo vessels slowed during their passage through the main channel so as to minimise disturbance.

Tributes immediately flowed on Twitter. “No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day,” tweeted the director Ron Howard. “RIP Tony Scott. So sad to hear this,” said the documentary-maker Morgan Spurlock. “We are absolutely devastated by the passing of director Tony Scott. He will be truly missed,” said a statement from Tribeca Film. Film director Duncan Jones, who directed Moon and Source Code, tweeted: “Just heard about Tony Scott news. Horrible … Tony was a truly lovely man who took me under his wing & ignited my passion to make films.” Jones added: “Awww Tony. Wish you had felt there was a way to keep going. What a sad waste. My thoughts go out to his wife and beautiful children.”
