A little over a month after Tony Scott jumped to his death from a Los Angeles bridge, the director's will has been uncovered.

In the document obtained by E! News, the "Top Gun" director left behind personal property valued at $1.25 million to his wife, Donna, and the couple's two sons through his trust.

However, the will, which appoints Dennis Luderer as executor and Scott's brother, Ridley Scott, as executor in the event of Luderer's death, notes that several ancillary executors not named have been appointed to oversee the late filmmaker's property outside of California.

In other words, the rest of Scott's multimillion-dollar fortune remains hidden in the family trust, and therefore, the $1.25 million figure doesn't actually represent how much his estate is truly worth.

While officials are treating Scott's passing as a suicide, the official cause of his Aug. 19 death has been deferred for several weeks until the coroner receives the toxicology and other test results back.
