Ridley Scott’s company Scott Free London has inked a deal with Universal Music Publishing, which will see Uni adminster all music publishing rights retained by the shingle.

Under the long-term partnership, Uni will assist on licensing music from Scott Free’s catalogue and advising on score composers.

They will also provide strategic advice on all music-related aspects of Scott Free’s film and TV projects.

“We are really excited to have entered into this partnership with Ridley Scott and Scott Free London,” said Universal Music Publishing’s VP of business development and media Simon Mortimer. “This is also great news for our songwriters and artists as we will be working closely with them on music strategy and production across all projects.”

Scott Free’s head of business development and commercial affairs Carlo Dusi added: “This new partnership enables us to access the invaluable know-how and expertise of Universal Music Publishing’s film and television music team. The company’s roster and catalogue is second to none and we are eager to explore the world of opportunities that this relationship opens up for us.”

Scott Free’s production credits include YouTube backed “Life in a Day,” “Britain in a Day” and “Japan in a Day” as well as the two-part television adaptation “Labyrinth” based on the best-selling tome by Kate Mosse.

The company is currently in post production on Rowan Joffe’s thriller “Before I Go To Sleep,” toplining Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong, based on S J Watson’s best-selling novel.

Upcoming projects include “Blood Red Road,” “Get Santa” and TV drama “Effective Range.”
