Top Gun director’s scholarship legacy
THE family of Top Gun director Tony Scott has created a memorial scholarship at the American Film Institute to help future film-makers and to honour his creative legacy.
The British film-maker and younger brother of Gladiator director Sir Ridley Scott jumped from a bridge into Los Angeles Harbour on 19 August.
Family and close friends gathered over the weekend for a private memorial.
According to his death certificate, released on Monday, Scott was cremated and his widow will keep his remains at their Los Angeles-area home. The document does not include a formal determination of the cause of Scott’s death.
Coroner’s officials expect it will take several weeks to end their investigation, but they are treating his case as a probable suicide. The last film Scott directed was 2010’s Unstoppable.
