Denzel Washington has told how he was planning a film with director Tony Scott just days before he took his own life.

Washington, who was one of Scott's regular collaborators, had worked on five films with the director, and was shocked by his death.

“I made five movies with him. I talked to him about a week before he died about our sixth movie. He wanted to do a film where I played a submarine captain driving a submarine filled with narcotics. We were talking about it,” he told Seven magazine.

But he added that he would not plan to revisit the project, adding: “I wouldn't touch it now. Not without him.”

“I've never been in a situation like this where you start to backtrack. You think what they said to you. You think what you said. And then a week later they kill themselves. You might think it was something that I did. You don't see it coming. I don't know what was going on in his life.”

Washington starred in 'Man On Fire', 'Deja Vu', 'The Taking of Pelham 123', 'Unstoppable' and 'Crimson Tide' with Scott.

The director, brother of Ridley Scott, was also working on the sequel to 'Top Gun' with Tom Cruise, scouting locations days before he committed suicide.

Scott jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles last August.

He was 68.
