Director Tony Scott left an estate of $1.25 million (£770,000) to his family trust, it has emerged.

Court documents obtained by US gossip site TMZ name his wife Donna and his 12-year-old twins Max and Frank as the beneficiaries.

But it's likely that Scott's assets, which had already been made part of the trust, would add up to more than the £1.25 million sum of his property.

Scott took his own life by throwing himself from Vincent Thomas Bridge into the Los Angeles Harbour on August 19.

The reason for his suicide remains unknown, but he left a note and a number of messages to loved ones.

Rumours that the 68-year-old had been diagnosed with cancer have been called 'absolutely false' by his wife Donna, and he was in line for a number of major Hollywood projects.

He had met with Tom Cruise just two days before his death, discussing details of the sequel to his 1986 action hit 'Top Gun'.

“We had a meeting just two weeks ago and he was burning with the excitement of creating stuff,” said 20th Century Fox chairman Tom Rothman.
