Due to Tony Scott's unfortunate and shocking suicide on Sunday, his older brother, Ridley Scott, has suspended the production of The Counselor.
The director has been shooting the Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender crime thriller in London, but flew back to El Lay on Monday to comfort his sister-in-law and twin nephews during this difficult time.
Cormac McCarthy, the renowned author behind No Country For Old Men, wrote the screenplay for the upcoming flick about a lawyer who gets involved in illegal drug trafficking.
No word on how long the production will be shut down, but we imagine no one is complaining because of how serious the circumstances are.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Scotts as they deal with the sad situation.
