Tony Scott

Photo Shoot at Bridge

2 Years Before Suicide

EXCLUSIVE

0820_tony_scott_bridge_tmz_articleTony Scott was no stranger to the area where he committed suicide ... in fact, the "Top Gun" director conducted a photo shoot near the Vincent Thomas Bridge exactly TWO YEARS before his death.

TMZ obtained a photo of Tony -- along with four other men -- checking out some railroad tracks in San Pedro, CA on August 19, 2010 ... with the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the background.

During the shoot, Tony was sporting the same pair of red shorts he was wearing when authorities discovered his body on August 19, 2012.

Sources tell TMZ ... Tony and his crew were conducting a post-production photo shoot for Tony's movie "Unstoppable" ... which starred Denzel Washington.

The photos were taken by Scott Trimble ... who, according to IMDB, worked as an assistant production supervisor on "Unstoppable."

Trimble has since tweeted about the tragedy ... saying, "Tony Scott was a good man who will be missed."

TMZ's next amazing article about Tony Scott will read "Tony Scott had MEDICATION in his system during death" What a joke this place has become.

He had been depressed for awhile, and as he was approaching the bridge, he said to himself..."Lord I'm really having a tough time lately and I'm contemnplating suicide." "If you could just give me a sign as of what to do." The next song the radio station played was "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by simon and garfunkle.

This is important because?????????? Really TMZ, enough with the gleeful reporting on minutia. The man was terminally ill, took his own life and is now dead. How much more do we need to know?

Concentrate more on the "disease" of depression and suicide. It's your brain telling your brain you NEED to kill yourself.

There was a famous jump of the VST Bridge...it was done by Dar Robinson in the movie To Live and Die in LA. He jumped off the bridge with a bungee cord around his ankle....check it out.

Most insurance policies have a suicide clause. Why would Mr. Scott deny his family the benefits from his life insurance? Additionally, if he was so concerned about his kids watching him die from cancer, why would he leave them the lasting image of a coward who couldn't faces life?

This would definitely be even harder if doctors come up with a cure on Tuesday.
