Videos of Tony Scott’s suicide are already being shopped around to media outlets, TMZ is reporting. The ‘Top Gun’ director’s jump off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California on Sunday was captured on tape by multiple people, and is being shopped around for a price.
Several witnesses to Scott’s death took out their cell phone cameras when they noticed the filmmaker climbing over a fence on the bridge. They continued recording as he jumped off and fell to his death. Some people took photos, while others recorded video. The footage was also captured by a surveillance camera from a nearby business.
TMZ staff has viewed the footage, but declined to purchase it. It’s not clear if any other media outlets have purchased the videos, however.
