His body was pulled out of the water by Los Angeles Police Department, California Highway Patrol and U.S. Coast Guard officials.

[Updated at 9:42 p.m.: Investigators found a note in his car, which was parked on the bridge. That note listed contact information. They later found a suicide note at his office. An earlier version of this story said the suicide note was found in his car.]

Law enforcement sources said several witnesses saw Scott, the brother of director Ridley Scott, climb over a fence on the bridge and jump off.

The coroner's office identified him Sunday evening.

Scott was a respected action-movie director who also made "Enemy of the State," "Beverly Hills Cop II" and "Crimson Tide."

My first thought was him tiring of living in his brother's shadow. But who knows?

RIP

he wasnt the level of his brother but come on he made Top Gun and produced a shitoad of movies. That alone makes him a decent contributor to the movie world and American culture.

Man on Fire with Denzel Washington was a hell of a good movie.

Damn this is a shame. R.I.P.

Yea, i was wondering if it was going to be something like this. Maybe the suicide note will leak?

That sucks. I think I'd definitely prefer the bridge option.

Spy Game is another one he was involved in that I thought was great.

I read on Jalopnik that he was looking at making a series with his brother about Le Mans drivers that would've been a period drama similar to Mad Men.

Now that would've been badass...
