Talent Agency Wants $1 Million From Late Director Tony Scott For These Hits


Tony Scott and family

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 percent 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:

"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."
