Late last night successful Hollywood director/producer Tony Scott lept to his death from the Vincent Thomas Bridge out on the West Coast. Such an incredible loss to the industry...
His older brother Ridley Scott left London for L.A. upon hearing of his brother's death.
Looking at his IMDB page Tony Scott had a hell of a lot of oars in the water. "Prometheus 2" (the second "ALIEN" prequel) just being announced. He worked with his brother on the first that was released earlier this summer.
"Top Gun" had its moments for me (I mean, fighter jets and Naval Aviators in flight suits, dress whites, and towels in locker rooms ... What's not to love, ladies?). But "Man on Fire" and "Domino" are two of my favorite late night flicks to catch on cable/HBO.
