Goose may be gone, but Maverick's still got the need for speed!

Ridley Scott is one tough hombre.
Two weeks after he took a hiatus from filmmaking to handle his brother's affairs after the late Tony Scott's tragic death - the Prometheus director is back behind the camera for his new movie The Counselor.
The director had left London for Hollywood where his brother killed himself.
The Counselor stars Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender and is wrapping up shooting in London before filming in Alicante, Spain.
Our condolences to Ridley and the Scott family.

Tony Scott's death is still under investigation according to his death certificate.
Although he left goodbye notes to his family - investigators did not check off "suicide" as the director's official cause of death on his death certificate, and instead put "deferred" and that it was still "pending investigation."
We're guessing this will just be a temporary formality until the official autopsy and toxicology report results come in.
For the location of the famed director's death, the certificate said "Under Vincent Thomas Bridge."
We are still totally baffled why Tony Scott ended his life, and we feel terrible for his family and friends.

The note was described to be "short and sweet," and included a proclamation of unrequited love for his wife and two kids–Max and Frank.
Sources say Tony's wife could not tell

Friends and family close to him are worried all these stresses are simply too much for one man to handle!
They think he should take some time to find himself but they say getting him to take vacay is mission impossible!
