Creative Artists Agency is seeking $1,040,522 from the estate of the late Tony Scott over commissions CAA says it is due. The agency wants the standard 10% cut from Scott’s work on the films Man On Fire, Unstoppable, The Taking Of Pelham 123, Deju Vu and his directing duties on the video game Criminal. “This is a standard legal procedure. Tony had a wonderful relationship with CAA for 20 years and the estate will settle this as quickly as possible. This is nothing out of the ordinary,” a spokesperson for the estate told Deadline. It is a fairly common practice for creditors to file such legal claims against an estate if monies are owned. The 68-year old Scott died on August 19, 2012, jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles County that spans San Pedro and Terminal Island.The agency filed the Creditor’s Claim on January 28 in LA Superior Court (read it here).
