    Director Tony Scott Commits Suicide Jumps Off L.A. Bridge

    Some good movies in there. True Romance was an underated but awesome movie.


    Famed director Tony Scott -- who directed "Top Gun" among many other major films -- jumped to his death today off an L.A. bridge ... this according to the L.A. County Coroner.

    According to the Coroner, 68-year-old Scott -- Ridley Scott's brother -- jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island around 12:30pm.

    U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Jennifer Osburn said a suicide note was found in Scott's Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge.

    Scott directed such films as "Top Gun," "Beverly Hills Cop II," "Enemy of the State," and "The Taking of Pelham 123."

    Authorities used sonar equipment to find Scott's body in the port's murky waters. His body was recovered at approximately 4:30pm ... four hours after he jumped.

    His body has since been turned over to coroner officials.

    INT. NIGHT. THE VINCENT THOMAS BRIDGE, L.A. CALIFORNIA.

    A MAN (TONY SCOTT) STANDS PRECARIOUSLY AT THE LEDGE. HE IS WEARING A TATTERED VINTAGE JERSEY OF THE NEW YORK JETS FOOTBALL CLUB. IN ONE HAND IS A SIGN WHICH READS, "WAYNE HUNTER IS A F**KING EMBARRASSMENT". IN THE OTHER IS A PLACARD READING, "WHY WAS 32GREEN MADE A MOD? SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS S HIT TO ME."

    SCOTT: (VOCIFEROUSLY AND WITH CALM, YET CRESTFALLEN, RANCOR) "...F**K me if I will watch that talentless POS ruin another season. And, after I rented out a suite at the Bel Age and laid out that incredible spread for a f**king Jet pre-season game. Carving stations with steamships of beef, omelette bar, plus top shelf booze, to boot. Nice friggin' joke.

    But, I should have known better, with these friggin' Jets. One, year. One goddam year would it kill Woody and the rest of those front office putzes and scrub jackoff "players" to provide me with one iota of success--and I won't even start about a semblance of happiness or professional aplomb--without the annual issues issues like sticking a no talent, "ham & egger" offensive lineman as a starter? Are you f**king kidding me? Hunter belongs on in a Saskatchewan-based logging camp cleaning latrines.

    And don't get me started on Sanchez. That dickhead is like a pick six machine. Next time, f**k-o, finish your time at USC. You suck.

    AS VOICE TRAILS OFF, PULL OUT TO WIDE SHOT OF BRIDGE WHERE WE SEE A LONE MALE FIGURE JUMPING AND HURTLING TOWARD THE CALM WATER BELOW. THEN CLOSE UP OF MAN'S HANDS IN DOUBLE BIRD SALUTE.

    FADE OUT.
