Tony Scott in 2009.
Acclaimed director Tony Scott died Sunday after jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, Calif. He was 68.
Scott was well known for directing big-budget classics, and for collaborating with his older brother, director Ridley Scott.
Since the news broke last night, Hollywood figures have remembered him fondly:
No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day— Ron Howard
So sad to hear about Tony Scott. A master of grand action, nail biting pace and atmosphere. A real loss to film making.— Simon Pegg
Taking a moment to reflect on Tony Scott’s life & work! My sympathies to his family. Feeling the loss!— Samuel L. Jackson
From 1983 to 2010, Scott directed 16 major motion pictures — some critically acclaimed, others not so much. Always, though, his action films found a loving cult audience. Here, a look back at his work.
