Ivan Dunleavy, chief executive of Shepperton Studios in Middlesex, said:
We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic news that Tony Scott has died.
He was not only an incredibly gifted film-maker and ambassador for the UK film industry, he was a significant part of the history of Shepperton Studios.
He directed some of the most successful films of all times and at Shepperton. These included The Hunger (1981), Spy Game (2001) and Tony most recently produced Prometheus (2012), directed by his brother Ridley.
He will be sadly missed and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.
