Development head quits Jeremy Thomas' RPC

Alexandra Stone has been tapped to helm CMP Film, a London-based film shingle set up by legit company Creative Management and Prods., founded by Nick Frankfort and Tobias Round two years ago.

Stone, who spent 14 years at Jeremy Thomas’ Recorded Picture Co., most recently as head of development, will develop and produce a slate of director- and writer-driven features.

She began her career in Hollywood on the Warner lot at Paula Weinstein’s Spring Creek Prods. Her producing credits include David Mackenzie’s “Young Adam,” Menhaj Huda’s “Kidulthood,” Richard Linklater’s “Fast Food Nation” and Gerald McMorrow’s “Franklyn,” which recently world preemed at the London Film Festival.

CMP commissions and produces stage productions, including the current Donmar Warehouse production of “Piaf,” which transferred to the Vaudeville in London’s West End in October. CMP also manages directors and choreographers, including Michael Grandage.
