Los Angeles - Tony Scott's agents are seeking $1m 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% 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 $7m plus a $1m producing fee.

The filings state Deja Vu earned Scott $10m, and he received a $9.5m salary for the Pelham 123 remake.

An attorney for Scott's estate declined comment through a secretary.
