Ridley Scott is resuming work on The Counsellor after taking time off following the apparent suicide of his filmmaker brother.
The director suspended production on the movie after Tony Scott jumped off a bridge in Los Angeles last month.
The drug-themed drama - which stars Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz - was shooting in London when Ridley heard the news about his brother and he put it on hold for two weeks while he travelled to Los Angeles to be with his family.
Deadline reports that Ridley is returning to work on the film today (September 3).
Top Gun director Tony Scott jumped from a bridge into Los Angeles Harbour on August 19.
Coroner's officials have said it will take several weeks to finalise their investigation, but they are treating his case as a probable suicide.
