Scott shingle picks a prexy

Costigan oversaw Sony pix including 'Angels,' 'Snatch'

Capping weeks of negotiations, Ridley and Tony Scott have named Michael Costigan prexy of their Fox-based Scott Free production shingle.

The Sony-based producer had served for nearly a decade as a senior production exec at Sony’s Columbia Pictures, overseeing pics including “Charlie’s Angels, “Gattaca,” “The People vs. Larry Flynt,” “Girl, Interrupted” and “Snatch.”

More recently, he produced the upcoming Ang Lee film “Brokeback Mountain.” Costigan has also been developing a feature based on the long-running CBS skein “Dallas” for Regency Enterprises and a film adaptation of Nick Flynn’s novel “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” for Col.

Costigan replaces longtime Scott Free prexy Lisa Ellzey, who stepped down two months ago.

“He not only has experience within a studio but has worked on the other side as a producer, making him a valuable asset to our company,” the Scott brothers said of Costigan.

Both Scotts are busy directing features: Ridley Scott is in pre-production on “A Good Year,” starring Russell Crowe, for Fox 2000, and Tony Scott will direct Denzel Washington in “Deja Vu” for Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Scott Free produced Curtis Hanson’s upcoming Fox 2000 release “In Her Shoes” as well as “Domino,” starring Keira Knightley, at New Line Cinema.

In addition, Scott Free produces the CBS skein “Numbers,” recently renewed for a sophomore season.
