LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Tony Scott's agents are seeking $1 million in fees they say they are owed for the deceased director's work on films such as "Unstoppable" and "Man on Fire."
The Creative Artists Agency filed a creditor's claim against the director's estate on Monday.
Scott died after leaping from a Los Angeles bridge in August.
The filing seeks a 10 per cent share of Scott's earnings to direct "The Taking of Pelham 123," ''Unstoppable," and "Deja Vu." CAA is also seeking residual payments for "Man on Fire," which Scott directed for $7 million plus a $1 million producing fee.
The filings state "Deja Vu" earned Scott $10 million, and he received a $9.5 million salary for the "Pelham 123" remake.
An attorney for Scott's estate declined comment through a secretary.
