Los Angeles - Tony Scott's life will be honoured at a "family-only" ceremony this weekend.

A service for the late film director - who jumped to his death from Vincent Thomas Bridge into the Los Angeles Harbour on Sunday  - will be carried out in Los Angeles, and his family will then announce further plans about a public gathering to celebrate his life after Labour Day on 3 September.

In a statement released to Deadline.com, Tony's family said: "Tony Scott will be honoured at a private, family only ceremony this weekend in Los Angeles.

"The family will announce plans after Labour Day for a gathering to celebrate the life and work of Mr Scott. Details will be forthcoming once they are formalised."

Tributes

Tony - the brother of Prometheus director Sir Ridley Scott - had recently completed work on action movie Out of the Furnace, which stars Christian Bale, and he leaves behind wife Donna and their 12-year-old twin sons Max and Frank.

A number of stars have paid tribute to the filmmaker including Tom Cruise - who Tony directed in 1986 action movie Top Gun - describing him as a "dear friend".

He said: "Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him."

An autopsy was performed on Tony's body on Monday but the results have been deferred pending the outcome of the toxicology report.
