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 Harbor on Aug. 19, 2012 -- will be carried out in Los Angeles, and his family will then announce further plans about a public gathering to celebrate his life in September after Labour Day
In a statement released to Deadline.com, Scott’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 Labor Day for a gathering to celebrate the life and work of Mr. Scott. Details will be forthcoming once they are formalised."
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 Scott directed in 1986 action movie 'Top Gun' -- describing him as a "dear friend".
Cruise said: "Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him."
An autopsy was performed on Tony's body on Aug. 20, but the results have been deferred pending the outcome of the toxicology report.
