Based on a recent report published by the Associated Press, a memorial scholarship has been created in honor of the late director, Tony Scott. Close friends and the members of the family gathered over the weekend to honor the director through a private memorial service.
The family of the British-born director has addressed few words to the press since Tony Scott’s death was declared on August 19th. The death certificate which was released on Monday stated that the director was cremated and his remains will be taken by his wife at their home in Los Angeles.
Close sources have stated that a private service was held over the weekend in honor of Tony Scott at his residence. Former colleagues, close friends and members of the family attended commemoration and said their last goodbye to the man that was going to be cremated the following day, that is, on Monday.
Scott’s cause of death hasn’t been declared yet, judging by the information provided by the certificate. Police officers continue to investigate the demise, even though they have many reasons to believe that the case is a suicide.
The “Top Gun” director was found dead on August 19 after a passerby called the police to tell them that a car was abandoned on the bridge close to the Los Angeles Harbor. When authorities arrived at the scene they stopped the traffic on the bridge and ordered ships to sail slower until they finished looking for the man. They managed to find the director, but it was too late to save him.
Investigators have also searched Scott’s office in order to find evidence that could shed light on what had happened. They found a note, but the document was handed to the late director’s family.
Tony Scott has created many blockbuster movies; his last production was “Unstoppable” in 2010. His family wanted to make sure that his memory will be forever cherished, so they created a memorial scholarship for the students of the American Film Institute.
