Work understandably is the last thing on Ridley Scott's mind right now.
Scott immediately suspended shooting for the week and boarded a flight to Los Angeles so he could be with the family in the wake of the tragedy.
The younger Scott jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning L.A. Harbor in San Pedro, Calif., yesterday afternoon. His body was recovered a few hours later. He was 68. Scott's autopsy is scheduled for today and ABC News has quoted a source as saying he had inoperable brain cancer.
The Scott brothers have been a major creative force in Tinseltown the last two decades, producing a multitude of projects for the big screen and small through their production company, Scott Free.
A rep for the Scott family told E! News today: "The family asks for privacy at this time."
