Tony Scott's Will

Leaves Entire Fortune

to Wife and Kids

9/21/2012 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921_tony_scott_getty_1Director Tony Scott, who jumped to his death off a Los Angeles bridge in August, willed all of his estate -- worth just over a million dollars -- to his wife and twin boys, TMZ has learned.

TMZ obtained a copy of Scott's will, which was filed in probate court in L.A. County earlier this week -- and according to the documents he left everything to the Tony Scott Family Trust ... established in 2004.

The beneficiaries of the trust are his wife Donna W. Scott and his 12-year old twins Max and Frank.

In the probate docs, the value of Tony's estate is listed as $1,250,000 worth of personal property -- however, considering his success, it's likely Tony was worth millions more ... and his assets had already been made part of the family trust.

Tony's famous brother Ridley Scott was originally named co-executor of the will -- drawn up in 2004 -- but in April 2011 he amended it to make attorney R. Dennis Luderer the sole executor ... and Ridley the first alternate executor.

WTF is the REAL deal here?
What's the real reason he jumped?
Agreed, he moved $$ to the Trust before death.
And yes, directing is HARD work! (I'm an actress.)
Also the crew works really hard.
Producers make most of the $$$.

his trust was amended in 2011 By a attorney BUT did he know that it was? and than he was dead wth a attorney in charge of most of his lifes income,that alone should send up a redish flag.His biz(scott free) productions vs the estate and the amended trust.The mob got control of the trust and wipped him out so he jumped OR murduch cleaned house again either way he is out of the way and the coverup is over and the billions stay intract.Even as a director he was a muti-millionare plus his company got a huge percent of the movies they Producted,he was a producer writter cowritter actor film camera man plus some stunt work and about anything he wanted to be as a film maker producer director actor writter cowritter in other words he got a huge sum of money for all his films both in production and on the tail end of the profits.How much is in his trust vs how much is in scott free production would show the money trail back to some more currupt attorneys putting that monkey back in murduchs handa again standard stab in the back mob vs mob SOP

Just to be clear, I generally respect the decisions ppl make for themselves, including the decision to end their life. But: it should have undergone thorough and extended consideration. And, this being essential, it should be properly explained to the ppl close to them. Because otherwise it's leaving them with nagging questions about their own responsibility and possibly life-long feelings of guilt.

And why this man should have wanted to prematurely end his life is a complete mystery to me.

Since he chose such a public manner to committ suicide, the family owes an explanation to the public at large as to why he did it. What are they hiding?
