“Tony Scott will be honored at a private, family only ceremony this weekend in Los Angeles. The family will announce plans after Labor Day for a gathering to celebrate the life and work of Mr. Scott. Details will be forthcoming once they are formalized,” according to a statement released by the family’s publicist.
