It looks as if famous movie director Tony Scott is going to have some money taken away from his estate. Scott’s old talent agency is suing the deceased director for  over $1 million in commissions.

CAA filed the creditor’s claim against Scott for owing $70,426 in commissions for “Unstoppable,” $450,000 for “Man on Fire,” $110,096 for “The Taking of Pelham 123,” $400,000 for “Deja Vu,” and $10,000 for some video game project.

In total, CAA says Scott’s estate owes $1,040,522. The scary thing is Scott made more than enough to pay these commissions and not ever have to worry about being sued while in the grave.

Tony Scott made the following from the projects in question:

“Man on Fire” — $8 million
“Unstoppable” — $4.5 million
“The Taking of Pelham 123″ — $9.5 million
“Deja Vu” — $10 million
Video game — $250,000

And let’s be clear this is just what Scott made as a base salary, this does not include any revenue sharing related to these projects that are based on success. It’s not clear Scott really owes the money to his talent agency or if they are just trying to collect money from a dead man’s estate, but either way Scott and his estate have enough money to throw around.
