When “Top Gun” director Tony Scott jumped to his death off a California bridge last August, he left behind an alleged $1 million in unpaid commissions to his powerhouse talent agency, Creative Artists Agency (CAA).This week, CAA filed a creditor’s claim against Scott’s estate in L.A. County Superior Court seeking $1,040,522 — to be exact — in unpaid commissions from several film projects.
CAA says Scott owes the agency a 10 per cent cut of his fees (at least) — which aren’t cheap.
Here’s what Scott made to direct the below films, according to docs obtained by TMZ:
- “Deja Vu””Deja Vu” (2006): $10 million
- “The Taking of Pelham 123″ (2009)”: $9.5 million
- “Man on Fire” (2004): $8 million
- “Unstoppable” (2010): $4.5 million
- As well as $250,000 for a video game project.
And here’s what CAA wants in commissions from Scott’s films:
- “Man on Fire”: $450,000
- “Deja Vu”: $400,000
- “The Taking of Pelham 123”: $110,096
- “Unstoppable”: $70,426
- And $10,000 for the video game project.
“This is a standard legal procedure,” a Scott family representative told The Hollywood Reporter. “The Scott estate has every intention to pay as soon as possible. Tony and CAA had a wonderful relationship.”SEE ALSO: How Lucasfilm co-chair Kathleen Kennedy is going to ensure the new ‘Star Wars’ is still awesome >
