Today is a sad day for fans of film, especially action movies. Director Tony Scott (brother of Ridley Scott)

has passed away in what is being ruled a suicide in San Pedro, California

Action movie maestro Tony Scott reportedly battled inoperable brain cancer before he jumped from a Los Angeles bridge and died Sunday.

ABC News reported the diagnosis citing a source close to the famed director of “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop II,” and “Crimson Tide.”

“The autopsy is scheduled for this morning. We might (see a brain issue), but we don’t have anything medically confirmed at this time,” Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County told the Daily News.

Here is the trailer to “Crimson Tide” one of my favorite Tony Scott films. He will be sorely missed and my thoughts and prayers go to Ridley and Tony’s wife and children.
