Scott Free adds to London team

Arbuthnott, Fletcher-Jones join as development execs

Scott Free, the film and TV production company founded by Ridley and Tony Scott, has tapped Jack Arbuthnott and Surian Fletcher-Jones as development execs for the U.K. outpost.

Arbuthnott joins from BBC Films, where he helped develop “West Is West,” which is shooting, and the upcoming “StreetDance 3D.”

He previously worked at the U.K. Film Council as a development exec, and before that held roles at New Line and Mission Pictures.

Fletcher-Jones comes from BBC Drama, where her credits include “Little Dorrit” and “Sense and Sensibility.” She will work primarily on developing TV projects.

In November Liza Marshall, pubcaster Channel 4’s head of drama, was tapped to head the U.K. operation.

Scott Free’s slate of films includes Tony Scott’s “Unstoppable” for 20th Century Fox; Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” for Universal; Joe Carnahan’s “The A Team”; Jordan Scott’s directorial debut “Cracks,” starring Eva Green; and the Jake Scott-directed “Welcome to the Rileys,” starring James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart.
