Tony Scott reported dead
When I think of Tony Scott, I’d say that the first thing that comes to mind is the 1983 vampire movie, The Hunger. Scott directed David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve, and the stylish film was a milestone in the idea of attractive, contemporary vampires.
Next, I suppose, is Top Gun…no question, the Tony Scott-directed fighter pilot movie has had a large public culture impact.
My third would be NUMB3RS, the TV series with the math geek helping the FBI in investigations. That’s a place where you might have been used to seeing the Scott Free Productions logo (a company in which Tony Scott was involved with his brother, Ridley Scott).
Other geek credits include
- Enemy of the State (director)
- Deja Vu (directed Denzel Washington in a time travel movie)
- The Andromeda Strain (2008 miniseries: executive producer)
- The A-Team (big screen remake: producer)
- The Grey (executive producer)
- Prometheus (producer…he was working on the sequel)
- Call of Duty ELITE: Friday Night Fights
- Coma (2012 TV remake: executive producer)
- Ion (producer)
