Ridley Scott

Tony Scott's big brother has arrived.

In light of his brother's death, fellow director and Scott Free business partner, Ridley Scott, touched down in Los Angeles from London yesterday, and was seen stopping at their shared West Hollywood office today around 10:30 a.m. in a Toyota Prius, E! News confirms.

An eyewitness tells us that Ridley, who arrived alone, stayed at the office until around 2 p.m. and understandably looked like he had a lot on his mind.

It was announced yesterday that the Prometheus director had temporarily halted production on his latest film The Counselor in London, following the apparent suicide of his younger brother so he could be with family during this tough time.

An investigation is currently being conducted to pinpoint the reason behind Tony Scott's plunge from the Vincent Thomas Bridge on Sunday. Initial reports claimed the 68-year-old was suffering from inoperable brain cancer, however, a source tells E! News that Scott was not suffering from cancer.

As well, Chief Coroner Craig Harvey tells E! News that the autopsy showed no obvious signs of brain cancer, though further postmortem tests will determine if there were microscopic signs that may have been too early for a physician to detect.

The official cause of death has been put off until toxicology test results are revealed.

As of right now, no kind of funeral or memorial for Scott has been planned, our source tells us, and also shares that the family is currently working on all of those preparations.
