When Hollywood Producer Tony Scott died, he had yet to pay his talent agent more than $1 million in commissions. So, the Talent Agency, CCA, has filed a creditor's claim against Scott's estate looking to obtain that lost revenue. Scott apparently owed CCA a total of $1,040,522, which is divided in the following manner: "$70,426 for 'Unstoppable', $450,000 for 'Man on Fire,' $110,096 for 'The Taking of Pelham 123,' $400,000 for 'Deja Vu,' and $10,000 for some video game project." It should probably come as no surprise to anyone that Tony Scott earned a pretty penny for his work on those movies. Scott committed suicide in August 2012 by jumping off an L.A. bridge.
