Tom Cruise has already stated that he "will really miss" his "dear friend" Tony Scott and so will fans of the duo's 1986 classic, Top Gun.
It turns out they were actively working on the sequel!
Scott actually spent the last days of his life in preparation for the project. According to sources, both the director and Cruise toured a naval air station in Nevada last Friday to research the movie!
This only adds more mystery as to why such a successful man with what seems like so much to live for would decide to take his own life.
Whatever the answer to that difficult question is, we may never actually know, but probably don't need to anyway.
We have no idea what

While it comes as no surprise in this day and age, we're actually still shocked that their are reportedly people actually trying to profit from Tony Scott's suicide!
There were numerous witnesses watching as the director parked on the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California and proceeded to jump to his death, but some were using their cell phones to video tape the incident too.
Now sources are saying that people with footage are shopping it around!
Yuck! We hope no outlets bite this deplorable bait because it's not something anybody needs or should want to see.
It's a shame that the people recording were more worried about capturing the footage than they were about trying to talk Tony out of taking his own life!

The director's widow had no idea what they were talking about and is calling the report incorrect, while ABC has changed their story's headline to reflect that the "brain cancer report appears

As we previously reported, director Tony Scott committed suicide on Sunday, when he jumped from a bridge in San Pedro, California.
While it was rumored that he was battling depression, there were also reports that Scott had been dealing with “inoperable brain cancer.”
Now it seems those rumors are completely false, as the late director’s wife has confirmed he did NOT have brain cancer.
Scott’s wife also cited no other major medical conditions that would cause Tony to take his own life, as autopsy results are still pending.
Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this time.
Rest in peace, Tony.

If you're like us, you have been wondering why a vibrant, successful man like Tony Scott would take his own life.
Many have assumed a secret battle with depression, but it looks like that was incorrect.
According to a source close to the Top Gun director, he had inoperable brain cancer.
We can only assume from this news that Tony's suicide was not a measure of desperation and sadness, but rather a choice to spare himself a
